For colour fastness and shrinkage testing

We manufacture a comprehensive range of reference detergents, specified in many European and International standards. We have sophisticated production facilities, overseen by textile technologists, who ensure that the composition and performance of products are fully compliant with the specifications. We stock the full range of AATCC detergents for American standards and test methods.



The detergents are subject to rigorous performance testing in both our own and external laboratories.



Our detergents are delivered in convenient and sturdy plastic tubs (2kg) or fibre drums (15 or 90kg).



Each container of reference detergent is labelled with a precise product description and a list of thestandards with which it conforms.
