Fabric Tests

For coverall, it is more related to utility and durability as their production characteristics. Utility characteristics are changes in the wearing functions of a garment that occur when the fabric is subjected to a mechanical, thermal, electrical, or chemical force while being worn. While durability refers to the ability to maintain protection capabilities and wearing experiences until the maximum tolerance level is reached. By taking a peep at these test methods, you can understand how strict for a coverall to be CE qualified.

Based on EN 14325, there are 6 basic physical tests must be tested to analysis durability:

  • Abrasion Resistance
  • Flex Cracking Resistance
  • Trapezodial Tear Strength
  • Tensile Strength
  • Puncture Resistance
  • Seam Strength
