Textile testing is key in gauging product quality, ensuring regulatory compliance and assessing the performance of textile materials. Only by testing the performance of the textiles, can you be assured that your textiles live up to the high expectations on the market and that they are strong and flexible enough to do the job that they were designed for.

Testing textiles can include testing the strength of woven cloth, slippage in woven fabrics, seam strength and tests on yarns and attachments such as buttons and poppers.

Some of the most common test types within textile testing are tear resistance, compressive strength, tensile strength and puncture resistance, all of which are among the many types of tests that can be performed on our high-precision test machines.
