Eco -textiles

Overview

Summary

Eco -textiles are textile products made from harmless or less harmful materials to the environment.

Eco- textiles should comply with  the  following technical requirements:
1The  products shall not be treated with chlorine bleaching.
2 The product must not be mildew and moth prevention finishing and flame retardant finishing.
3.The products may not add pentachlorophenol and four chloro phenol.
4 The products shall not musty, gasoline and toxic aromatic odor. Smell, there are residues present.
5 The products shall not be used to decompose azo dyes, which are toxic aromatic amine dyes, which can cause cancer.
6 products of formaldehyde, can extract the heavy metal content, pH value of leaching solution, color fastness and the amount of pesticides should be in line with the requirements.

Standards and Regulations

Standard Oeko-Tex 100

Standard Oeko-Tex 100 is the world's most authoritative, the impact of the most popular textile ecological standards, the latest version of the 2015 Edition

China's relevant departments in combination with China's national conditions, from the most basic aspects of safety performance, the development of GB 18401: national general safety technical code for textile products and  GB 31701 : Safety technical code for infants and children textile products

Test items

pH value 
The pH value of human skin ranges between 4.5 and 6.0. During the aging process, human skin becomes less acidic and more vulnerable. Consequently, pH value of clothing affects consumers’ health. 

Formaldehyde 
Formaldehyde is used in textile as anti-shrinking, anti-creasing agent. This volatile compound is easy to release from the textiles, and causing damage to our health, especially to our respiratory system. 

Extractable heavy metals
Sb As Pb Cd Cr
Co Cu Ni Hg Cr VI
Heavy metals are absorbed by plants through soil, and introduced into the textiles in the finishing and dying process. Once absorbed by humans, heavy metals accumulate in organs. The highly accumulated heavy metals cause severe damage to one’s health. We use artificial perspiration to extract heavy metals and determine their content in textiles.

Azo / Allergenic / Carcinogenic Dyes 
Dyes released from textiles can enter into the human organism. Azo is widely used in textiles and leathers, some of which are considered to be toxic when converted into aromatic amines. Disperse dye is minute and passes through human skin, which can be allergenic and/or carcinogenic. 

Phthalates
Phthalates are commonly added into plastics and paintings as plasticizers. Research shows that some kinds of phthalates cause hazardous effects to young children. 

Organic Tin Compounds 
Organic Tin is used in inner material, gloves and baby-care products as an anti-microbial agent. High concentrations of organic tin may be absorbed through skin and affect the nervous system. 

Color Fastness
Color Fastness is a basic requirement of textiles and is a reflection to quality. Not only does the fading of dye affect the apparel’s appearance, but also the dye may be absorbed. Color fastness regulated in Eco-Textile tests includes the color fastness to water, perspiration (acid / alkaline), rubbing (dry / wet) and saliva (for babies). Color fastness to saliva and to perspiration is of particular concern in baby’s apparel.
