Scanning Electron Microscope

This webcast will give you an overview of the cause of odor formation and the interaction of odor molecules with textiles. It is shown what methods are there to analyze existing fabrics for sweat odor removal or to develop powerful new products, reliable detection methods for sweat odor. Odor control goes far beyond antimicrobial!

Quality requirements for textiles

There are three types of requirements for textile quality: statutory requirements, own requirements and unique selling points.

Compliance with the statutory requirements for each country in which the product is sold is mandatory. Various harmful substance parameters, for example, banned azo dyes, flame dispersion criteria and also specifications for textile labelling are regulated at the statutory level.

Water Repellency

The test for water-repellent properties of textiles determines how wet a textile becomes after being sprayed briefly with water. This simulates rain or spray. Water drops remaining on the textile affect the weight of the textile and may encourage water to penetrate the inside of the clothing.

Textiles that come into contact with spray water are tested - specifically water-repellent finishes, rain or outdoor clothing, tents, rucksacks, coverings for rain and sunshades and shower curtains and blinds. To assess the permanence of water-repellent characteristics in textiles, it is advisable to repeat the spray process before and after a care treatment.
