Faculty of Textile Technology
Laboratory of physical chemical materials testing

The laboratory performs numerous basic physical/chemical tests (quantitative analysis, amount of finishing agents, shape and dimensional stability, colour fastness in care procedures and product application and the like), both for the purposes of the teaching process and for the purposes of scientific research work and the collaboration with economy. The laboratory is adequately equipped for basic tests indispensable in textile quality control in conformity with standard demands; in addition, it is equipped for tests of individual functional characteristics in conformity with the demands of contemporary textile materials with special and high properties. It refers primarily to the assessment of comfort based on sorption characteristics, waterproofness under high hydrostatic pressures related to fire resistance testing in conformity with the expected application of the textile material (e.g. protective clothing, furniture and civil engineering fabrics).
