Service Scope

Buyers want to make sure fabric quality is good enough for their brand names. Easily torn fabric or non-lasting colors affects the final garment performance and gets them customer complaints and distrust.

“My fabric has good quality.”, but how to prove? A trusted third-party test report may help.

SGS’s fabric swatch package provides basic chemical and physical performance test suggestions for fabric swatches that are yet to confirm end use. Test plans are ready for textile swatches, leather and faux leather swatches, and plastic sheets etc. If you are looking for basic quality assurance testing, here is a good start.

Remarks

The test items will be adjusted depending on your product type and age range. Only specific test items will be applied to the selected product type, test type and destination market. Detailed test item list will be included in order confirmation email upon purchase.

NO flammability test is included in the package, as the standard to apply is dependent on end-use. If you expect specific product end use and market, please contact us.

Basic physical test package does not include any comment on care labeling. If you are looking for a care instruction development, please consider “Care Label Recommendation” in Washing Tests.

If your garment is composed of white color or indigo dye (which is common for denim), you may want to consider additional Colorfastness Tests for White Color/Indigo Dye. Dye for these color types is especially vulnerable to certain warehouse conditions.

# To save your test budget, the composite test is quoted for chemical testing. Similar materials on the sample will be gathered for analysis. In case any restricted chemical is detected in composite testing, additional individual checking may be required. Applicant will be informed in that case.

For a more comprehensive restricted substance checking, please consider ECO package.
