Textile is the first environment and the second skin of the human body, and it is the human body environment. With the deepening of people's concept of ecological textiles and green textiles, as well as their emphasis on health and the enhancement of environmental protection awareness, the logo of ecological textiles has become a new demand in the field of textile and apparel trade. Oeko-TexStandard100 is the most authoritative and influential textile eco-label in the world. It is issued by the International Textile Ecology Research and Inspection Association. Alfa Chemistry Testing Lab provides testing services for ecological indicators of textiles according to Oeko-TexStandard100 standards to ensure product quality and improve the product competitiveness.
Alfa Chemistry's ECO testing services include, but are not limited to, following:
Detection of harmful heavy metals is one of the routine monitoring items of ecological textiles. With the popularization of the concept of green consumption, consumers and enterprises have paid more and more attention to the safety and health performance of textiles, ecological textiles have become the mainstream of the market, and the analysis of heavy metal residues in textiles has received more and more attention.
The pH value is a safety index of textiles, and the standard requires a pH value of 4.0 to 9.0. Higher or lower pH value not only affects the performance of the textile itself, but also may cause certain harm to human health during the use of textile.
There are two main categories of banned dyes used in textiles, one is allergenic dyes and the other is carcinogenic dyes. Allergenic dyes can enter the human body through the skin during contact with human skin, which can cause an allergic reaction to the skin or certain organs, thereby affecting the health of the human body. Carcinogenic dyes are absorbed through the skin and can produce carcinogenic aromatic amines in the process of decomposition in the human body, thus causing cancer.
Formaldehyde in textiles is widely concerned by consumers, and the detection of formaldehyde is particularly important. Formaldehyde gives textiles anti-shrink, anti-wrinkle, and non-iron functions. This volatile substance is easily released from the fabric, thereby harming human health, and in particular irritating the respiratory mucosa.
As the detection of pesticides has become an ecological textile monitoring project in cotton, wool and other natural fiber textiles, the requirements for the types and concentration limits of pesticides are becoming more and more stringent, so the detection of pesticides in textiles is of great significance.
