Stitch World - - NEWS TRACK -

Chem­i­cal test­ing for all kinds of tex­tile busi­nesses are now avail­able in Tirupur, one of the big­gest hubs for In­dia’s tex­tile and knitwear man­u­fac­tur­ing industry, as TÜV SÜD – a Ger­man safety, test­ing and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion gi­ant – has added the ser­vice to lab­o­ra­tory on Nehru Street, 15 Ve­lam­palayam, Tirupur. This was an­nounced by Niranjan Nad­karni, CEO of South & South-East Asia, Mid­dle East & Africa Re­gion at TÜV SÜD. “Ow­ing to our global her­itage of su­pe­rior ser­vices and ex­per­tise, we are equipped to sup­port clus­ters like Tirupur and its ad­ja­cent re­gions in­clud­ing Karur, Salem and Erode with the re­quired tech­ni­cal know-how to meet rapidly chang­ing re­quire­ments,” stated Nad­karni in a state­ment is­sued by the com­pany.

Equipped with state-ofthe-art in­stru­men­ta­tion, in­clud­ing UPLC-MS, GC-MS, UV-VIS spec­troscopy, FTIR and ICP-OES, the test­ing lab will of­fer com­pre­hen­sive tex­tile, ap­parel and home fur­nish­ing test­ing ser­vices. These equip­ment are needed for test­ing key pa­ram­e­ters such as pH lev­els as well as banned amines, ph­tha­lates, formalde­hyde and heavy met­als.

The ar­rival of chem­i­cal test­ing facility in the city is a boon for man­u­fac­tur­ers and ex­porters carv­ing a niche for In­dian knitwear prod­ucts in over­seas and lo­cal mar­kets. Those who have as­so­ci­a­tion with TÜV SÜD will be given sev­eral ben­e­fits. They will be of­fered as­sis­tance in im­prov­ing pro­duc­tion pro­cesses. It will also en­sure ways on how to op­ti­mise costs and min­imise risks and de­fects by en­sur­ing their prod­ucts’ com­pli­ance with the guide­lines.

Re­stricted Sub­stance List (RSL) and Zero Dis­charge of Haz­ardous Chem­i­cals (ZDHC) and other sim­i­lar safety reg­u­la­tions will also be of­fered at the facility.
