ISO/IEC 17025:2017 (NABL) Certification for Textile (Woven & Non woven)
Textiles (Woven and Non-Woven)
Textile is a term that everyone if familiar with. In today’s world, you will find textile everywhere. You can find a variety of textile products used in different aspects of commercial as well as domestic areas. Textile is referred to any fabrics that are made from weaving of yarn in different styles and formats.
Textiles are classified in two categories on the basis of the origin of the fibre. Fibres for textile are made from two different sources that are natural fibres and synthetic fibres.
The natural fibres are the ones that are made from natural materials such as Cotton, Jute, wool, silk and so forth. The natural fibres are comfortable to wear and are expensive in cost. There are rare chances that natural fibres cause any reaction to the human skin. But the natural fibres are not a good choice for industrial use as they are not very resistant to chemicals and do not have a very good physical strength. The natural fibres are used for mostly making clothing. They are also used for application where there is need for water retention as the natural fibre has good water retention.
Synthetic Fibres are the fibres that are manmade and synthesized in the industries with the use of some chemicals and chemical reaction. These fibres have great strength and can be used for bearing heavy loads as well. The example of such fibres include nylon, chiffon, Terri linen, Rayon, Polyester and so forth. The synthetic fibres have extensive industrial uses. They have properties such as high durability, elasticity; waterproofing and so forth make them ideal for industrial use. Also the synthetic fibres are cost effective as compared to the natural fibres.
On the basis of the threat structure, the textiles are classified in to two different groups that are woven and non-woven.
Woven fabrics are made by weaving of fibres in a pattern. Basically weaving is the process of interlacing of fibres perpendicularly to one another. The woven fabrics are created mainly on a loom and are made with many threads. The woven fabrics have the quality to stretch diagonally only. Normally woven fabrics do not stretch at all.
Nonwoven fabrics are not woven on a loom but they are made from long and short threads that have been bonded by a chemical, mechanical force or heat and solvent treatment. Nonwoven fabrics have extensive commercial usage such as in making filters, medical equipments, geotextiles and many others. Different types of nonwoven fabrics include Staple nonwovens, melt blown, spun laid, flash spun, and bonding nonwoven fabric with their own properties and usage in different areas of industries.
As the textile products are widely used for industrial applications and these applications are very critical to the whole process, it must be ensured that there is no compromise in the quality of the products. There is a whole plethora of quality tests that are performed on the textile products to ensure the best quality. These tests include shearing strength test, tensile strength test, pilling test, colour fastness test, softness, compression, bursting strength and so forth. The manufacturers of the textile products need to ensure that the products are tested in a safe and compliant environment within a lab that follows all the procedures for textile testing. The laboratory that conducts the quality testing for textile must be accredited by NABL and must have a certification for ISO 17025: 2017 which is a standard that ensures general competence of the laboratory.
