why need to be sure your consuming items (gament,appearl,non appearl, toys, jewlery & other home appliances) are eco friendly? & how you will be sure.

Why  need:

  • In recent years, the demand for eco-friendly materials and textiles has increased significantly among consumers and there is an increasing emphasis on sustainability from various pressure groups. This has resulted in significantly increased pressure on brands and retailers to meet the various eco standards. Due to stricter environmental legislations, retailers and brands are raising the bar for all the restricted chemicals and substances which need to be avoided in the end product. As a result, textile and clothing manufacturers are under great pressure to meet the requirements of eco parameters set by brands in order to be environmentally compliant and to avoid any ecology issues arising during manufacturing and the consumption of the product.

How you will be sure:

RSL testing essentially consists of the following steps:

  • Sampling – how a representative sample is obtained from the test specimen.
  • Extraction of digestion, Concentration, Cleanup, Derivatization if required.
  • Determination by Chromatography (for organic) or Atomic absorption or emission (for metals) or Spectrophotometer (both for metals and certain organic substances) methods.
  • Evaluation of obtained data.

All of the above need to be in line with standard processes and reliable so as to ensure final report accuracy and repeatability.

ECO Instrument:

  • A range of analytical techniques are used in the RSL testing for textiles including:
  • Gas Chromatography with Mass Spectrophotometer (GC/MS).
  • Gas Chromatography with Electron Capture Detector for chlorinated compounds (GC/ECD).
  • High Performance Liquid Chromatography with Diode Array Detector (HPLC/DAD).
  • High Performance Liquid Chromatography with Mass Spectral Detector (LC/MSD) for non-volatile compounds.
  • Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer with Graphite tube Atomization (AAS / graphite) for metals.
  • Inductively Coupled Plasma with Mass Spectrometer (ICP/MS)/ICP-OES for metals.
  • UV-Visible Spectrophotometer for metals and certain organics.
  • Absorbable Organic Halogen (AOX) Analyzer for organochlorines.
  • Micro wave digester
  • Fourier transform infrared spectrometer
  • Rotary evaporator
  • pH meter
