Jiangsu Shenghong Textile Testing Center carried out related testing of protective clothing fabrics


In May 2019, Jiangsu Shenghong Textile Testing Center was wholly-owned by Jiangsu New Vision Advanced Functional Fiber Innovation Center Co., Ltd. (National Advanced Functional Fiber Innovation Center).

With the new carrier of the National Advanced Functional Fiber Innovation Center, the testing center has been re-planned and defined, and a brand-new testing and application evaluation platform will be constructed.

In the early days of the resumption of work in various industries from February to February this year, Shengze Textile Enterprise did not fully resume normal production, and the enthusiasm for textile inspections did not drop. What is the reason?

Although affected by the new crown pneumonia epidemic this year, the situation of the textile industry is not clear, but the inspection business volume of our testing center has not decreased, basically the same as the same period last year. Zhou Qiang, director of the testing center, said, “This is inseparable from the fact that the majority of textile companies are increasingly focusing on product quality and strictly controlling quality.”

Affected by the epidemic this year, protective clothing fabrics have suddenly become popular. Judging from specific testing industry data, the testing center has recently received more testing on protective clothing fabrics.


Since the inspection center resumed work on February 10, it has added a lot of related tests for protective clothing fabrics, mainly for more than ten indicators such as water permeability, moisture permeability, breaking strength, and antistatic properties of the fabric.

The testing center currently has the testing capabilities of some performance indicators specified in the mandatory standard GB19082-2009 for medical protective clothing, and has built a number of functional analysis rooms related to the performance testing of medical protective clothing, including constant temperature and humidity rooms, physics rooms, and fastness rooms , Solarization room, electrostatic room, composition room, ecological room, water quality analysis room, etc., can develop medical protective clothing including appearance, water resistance, moisture permeability, surface moisture resistance, breaking strength, elongation at break, flame retardant Performance, antistatic performance, static attenuation performance and other aspects of testing.

Since its establishment in 2003, the testing center has served more than 4,700 companies and merchants, and has issued more than 252,000 test reports, winning the recognition of small, medium and micro enterprise customers in Suzhou and surrounding areas. Under normal circumstances, a test report can be issued within two days after the customer submits the sample for inspection.

As a national public service demonstration platform for small and medium-sized enterprises, the testing center has a service area of ​​5,000 square meters, equipped with complete hardware facilities and 220 sets of internationally advanced testing equipment. The testing items can be described as very wide. It is a professional textile testing and water quality analysis. , A third-party laboratory with free technical consultation and training. The existing qualifications include CNAS, CMA, M&S, H&M, NEXT, ANTA.

The testing center can also select different domestic and international product standards and testing methods for textile testing according to customer needs. The standards used are American Standard AATCC/ASTM, International Standard ISO/EN, British Standard BS, German Standard DIN, and Japanese Standard JIS. , National standards GB, GB/T, FZ/T, HJ/T, etc., can meet the textile and water quality testing needs of small, medium and micro enterprises and businesses in the Suzhou area, and provide good support for the development and innovation of textile industry products in the region.

The testing center can provide more than 80 testing items in four series of textile color fastness, physical properties, ecological and environmental protection, and functionality for small, medium and micro enterprises and businesses. In 2018, the testing center also added environmental (water and wastewater) qualification testing, which can implement related testing such as chemical oxygen demand, ammonia nitrogen, and hexavalent chromium.

The testing center plans to purchase relevant instruments and equipment within 2 years to carry out testing of performance indicators such as synthetic blood penetration resistance, filtration efficiency, skin irritation, microbial indicators, and ethylene oxide residues related to medical protective clothing. The research and development of performance reusable medical protective clothing do a good job of technical verification.

“Testing service, never ending”

The final request of the fabric inspection client is not only a test report, but also expects to continuously improve the quality of fabric products during the inspection process. Quality and test reports are complementary. In the testing center, what the technicians can bring to customers is the continuous improvement of fabric technology. If certain fabrics submitted by customers for inspection are found to have excessive formaldehyde content and are not environmentally friendly, as a professional testing organization, the testing center will promptly give customers improvement suggestions and guide them to improve the coating process.

Various other problems may arise in fabric testing, or poor raw materials, improper printing and dyeing, or improper finishing processes. The testing center will help customers conduct analysis and ‘one-to-one’ technical guidance to improve product quality.
