Automatic Profile Adjustment

Textile Tests

Fabric validation tests can be performed in MFI Textile laboratory. This laboratory was certified by the customers.  The tests carried out in Textile laboratory can be classified in main groups.

Abrasion Tests

Fabrics are subjected to abrasion tests with different weights, different materials and different motions in Martindale, MIE, Schopper, Taber, Stoll, Cesconi, Sponge Brush tester and other abrasion test machines.

Physical Tests

With physical tests, properties such as durability, adhesion between layers, elongation under load, tear strenght, seam strength of the fabrics can be checked

Antistain and Soiling Tests

Oil and water repellency and Soiling & Cleanability tests can be performed.

Colour and Fastness Tests

The dye resistance of the fabric is controlled by colour and fastness tests, such as light resistance, crocking and  colour fastness to water tests, etc.  

Light Resistance Tests

Light resistance test is performed to see the effect of sunlight on the material with the effect of heat and humidity. This test deals with materials and passenger compartment parts such as textiles, plastics, leather, textile coated with plastic, carpet, etc. Our weather-ometers have got Xenon lamp that operates in 340 nm, 420 nm and 300-400 nm wavelengths

Emission Tests

Emission tests such as odor and fogging tests are performed for the determination of volatile components in materials in the vehicle. It applies to all interior trim materials (textiles, leathers, plastic-coated fabrics, etc.) and the passenger compartment parts ( seat foam, instrument panel parts, rear parcel, plastics, etc)

Heat and Humidity Aging Tests

The aging tests are carried out between -40˚C and +180˚C temperature range and 10% to 98% relative humidity range

Flammability Tests

This test can be performed for all kind of materials (textile, vinyl, foam, leathers, plastic etc). The purpose of this test is to determine the horizontal burning rate and the type of combustion liable to occur on materials, which located inside the passenger compartment of vehicle.
