ETR offers quick service to check formaldehyde in apparel
Dec '14
US based, Environmental Testing and Research Laboratories (ETR) said it has developed a method for simply and quickly verifying levels of formaldehyde in apparel.

Very often when garments are manufactured offshore, it is necessary to add formaldehyde as a preservative to ensure the product arrives at its destination in a usable condition.

There is an industry standard as to the level of formaldehyde that is acceptable in product placed on the rack for sale to the public.

However, due to inconsistent standards in the country of origin, it has become incumbent on the retailer to verify that the levels of formaldehyde in clothing are at acceptable levels.

ETR Laboratories informs that quick services are available to retailers to verify that levels are within acceptable standards.

ETR Laboratories is a full service analytic laboratory with a specialty in serving a variety of industrial needs.

Established in 1995, ETR is well known for providing confidential speedy solutions for a variety of industries. (AR)
