Certification is a sign of pure quality
Reliability and safety are a must if you want to establish your business on the market!
Consumers and buyers are increasingly having to decide what product best meets their requirements. By inspecting and certifying your products in accordance with clearly defined criteria, we can help users make the right choice and enhance the competitiveness of high-quality products. Independent testing can effectively attract new target groups and open up new market opportunities.
Technical textile analyses
Here we work mainly with classic physical and chemical textile testing. Our services range from conducting material tests to determine relevant properties and conducting comparative analyses to determine whether the requirements made are satisfied (such as terms of delivery, tenders and requirement norms) to conducting analyses as part of the complaints handling process and location of fault causes.
Textile cleaning and care
When a claim or complaint is made, clarification is often required as to the extent to which there is a textile flaw or a deficiency in the cleaning method applied. An experienced team made up of textile technicians and chemists working together across disciplines provides a consultancy service in a wide range of issues to commercial textile cleaners and textile and clothing manufacturers
Test equipment construction
The ÖTI develops and constructs test equipment and laboratory systems for various textile applications, both for its own purposes and on behalf of customers. As well as in-house production, some of the equipment developed is produced under licence by leading manufacturers for the ÖTI.
