Mechanical testing of textiles
Test the mechanical quality and durability of your textiles. We test the strength, abrasion and pilling resistance to help you monitor the physical characteristics of your textiles and develop them accordingly.
Tear strength of textiles
Abrasion resistance of textiles – Martindale method
Appearance changes in textiles after the Martindale abrasion test
Coating adhesion of textiles
Delamination of fusible interlinings from upper fabric
Force and elongation of textiles – strip method
Knot tensile test of single and plied yarns
Permanent bend strength of textiles by flexometer method
Pilling test for textiles
Seam tensile properties of textile products
Seam slippage resistance of textiles
Single-end breaking force & elongation at break of fibres and threads
Transverse distortion of textiles
Tests of microplastics in textiles
Many synthetic textiles release microplastics into water during a washing process. Measurlabs offers reliable tests for determining the amount and types of microplastics released from textiles during washing.
Colour fastness is a central theme in textile development and quality management. We offer a large selection of colour fastness tests in different conditions, so that you can ensure that your fabric lives up to standards in all situations.

Thermal & waterproofness testing of textiles
We offer a variety of tests for measuring the thermal properties of textiles and clothes (e.g. thermal resistance R & thermal conductivity k). Our service selection also includes different sorts of waterproofness tests, such as hydrostatic head and water vapor transmission.
Textile flammability testing
We offer fire testing for textiles used in furniture, interior decoration, and garments. Our fire testing experts can help you identify your testing needs and lay out a testing plan that ensures the compliance of the textiles to their use purposes.
Cytotoxicity and skin irritation test for textiles
Ensure safety and wearability of your textiles and other skin contact materials with cytotoxicity and skin irritation tests. Measurlabs offers cruelty free cytotoxicity and skin irritation tests.
