Intertek, a leading provider of quality solutions to industries worldwide, announced the expansion of services offered by its Softlines testing laboratory in Istanbul, Turkey to support the country’s textiles, apparel and footwear industry. Its new capabilities include the addition of a range of chemical tests to identify the presence of unwanted substances.

The new tests will help manufacturers manage restricted substances like acrylamide, dimethylformamide (DMFa), isocyanate, short chain chlorinated paraffins, organotin compounds, disperse and carcinogenic dyestuff and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in their textiles, apparel and footwear, says the company.

“With $26 billion in exports in 2015, Turkey is among the world’s top 10 exporters of textiles and clothing. We have added new capabilities for test methods like the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) moisture management, National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) flammability, cotton linen fibre analysis, China’s voluntary FZ fibre analysis standards and antibacterial/antimicrobial testing to meet market demand,” said Neslihan Sözer Güllü, Softlines business line leader, Intertek Turkey.

Intertek performs textile and footwear testing on items ranging from material samples to finished products, helping customers meet consumer demand, minimise reputational risk, and reduce environmental impacts, while protecting the interests of retailers, brands, textile manufacturers and consumer safety.
