Use of materials

An incredibly vast number of materials with a wide range of different properties are now available to textile manufacturers.

Experts from the Hohenstein Institute will help you develop the technical specifications for your specific project and will provide you with advice based on this for the selection of suitable raw materials and preliminary products.

In doing so, we incorporate our experience from testing as well as the latest scientific findings which we have access to thanks to our involvement in all relevant international research networks.

Take advantage of the accumulated interdisciplinary knowledge of the Hohenstein scientists in the sense of a think-tank to develop completely new materials or (surface) finishes for your textiles. Expertise developed within the framework of contract research passes fully into your possession – but you can also benefit from collaboration in publicly funded research projects .

As an independent third-party laboratory in line with the Council Directives concerning medical devices we only perform tests on materials meant to be used for the production of medical devices as part of our accreditation.
