Chinese textile firms need to raise export standards
29
Aug '13
Last year, several batches of textile and apparel exported to Europe were found to be of sub-standard, especially in flame retardant properties, and the vast majority of these textile products were from China.
 
As per the European flame safety regulations on textiles and garments, there are three levels of combustion. First are those products with general combustion characteristics. The second category has medium combustion properties and the third category is products with rapid and intense burning properties, which are considered dangerously flammable.
 
The third category of textiles pose a fire hazard and are therefore not suitable for clothing, especially those meant for children.
 
According to industry analysts, leading Chinese textile and apparel companies failed in flame retardant inspection, because of two reasons. First, the production process is carried out at a very quick pace and there is no time to test the final product for their flame retardant properties.
 
Secondly, clothing design of some companies is defective, as they use some easily combustible materials like feathers for decoration on garment accessories.
 
In order to deal with the situation, experts suggest that textile and garment export companies need to mainly focus on three aspects. The first is to master foreign technical regulations and textile and garment manufacturers should keep themselves abreast of flame retardant regulations in their production processes and strictly adhere to the relevant requirements of production.
 
The second is for enterprises to be careful in choice of suppliers of raw materials, and ask the raw materials providers for flame retardancy test reports.
 
The third is for enterprises to first test the design sample for risk assessment, and strictly monitor the product development process by quality control, etc. to avoid design errors.
