Characterization and performance of textile safety products


Safety textiles constitute a wide spectrum of materials and products used in the manufacture of apparel for a variety of applications, ranging from personal protection uniforms specific to companies and the service sector to items for the individual consumer. Evaluations of these products include waterproof testing, breathability, wrinkle and dirt resistance, among others. Evaluations can also be made of protective equipment against particulate matter, such as masks and filters; heat resistant and flame retardant materials; retro-reflective materials, safety belts, and others.

The materials used in these applications require specific physicochemical characteristics for which IPT offers characterization tests and performance evaluations based on national and international standards to verify compliance to required specifications. In the absence of applicable technical standards, methodologies can be developed based on studies of the client’s specific needs and subject to his agreement.
