Comfort and performance put to the test

Testing and quality control ensures a high level of product quality with consistent results and performance.

Performance and comfort are crucial here: we've seen increased demand for testing these types of materials to assess:

  • water vapour transmission
  • drying rate
  • sweat wicking

 along with the more common tests for flammability and colour fastness.

Accurate, reliable, repeatable results - every time

Textile materials that are used in bedding and mattresses must meet performance and comfort requirements.

James Heal's performance testing instruments produce accurate and repeatable results every time you test.

Create confidence in your brand

Bedding and mattress manufacturers need to find ways to accurately replicate the conditions their products are put through in the real world, to ensure customer satisfaction and repeat purchases.

Testing for comfort in wicking, dry rate testing and even wet abrasion can help create consumer confidence in your brand.

Since 1872 we've been on a mission to improve every aspect of materials testing, so our customers can achieve consistent and accurate results, every time. Our new Performance Testing Range has been designed for testing performance wear and technical textiles.
