Textile analysis

Color fastness, pilling, tear strength: textile products have to respond to a series of physical investigations in order to determine their quality and durability. Ritex supports the companies along the necessary laboratory tests at every stage of the manufacturing process.

We have a wide range of instruments to test many aspects, such as tearing, abrasion, pilling, dimensional stability, technical comfort, air permeability, water permeability, thermal insulation and much more.

Chemical analysis

According to REACH regulation and foreign markets requirements, the textile industry must undergo a whole series of chemical tests.

Our laboratory evaluates the chemical safety of textile and leather clothing items as well as their accessories.

We perform all the necessary analysis for each product with our sophisticated instrumentation in collaboration with the other Ecochem Group laboratories.



Analysis consultation reports and endorsements

Consulting services and technical reports

All chemical and textile analysis are always supported by consulting services. Our goal is to listen to our customers and to faster their growth by explaining the real meaning of analysis.

Thanks to our professional experience accumulated over years, Ritex distinguishes itself not only for the numerical reports, but especially for the related in-depth explanations.

Attestations and endorsements

Customers can have access to Ritex attestations/endorsements through our advisory services, protocols and reports: according to specially-made protocols, we provide product performance attestations from a technical and/or process point of view (such as environmental sustainability).

Due to the continuous scientific and regulatory developments, Ritex attestations are issued annually. They are a real added value that your marketing offices can proudly communicate to their customers.



Training courses

Tailor-made courses for your company staff, based on all the useful (and fundamental) implementations, to improve and optimize the technical staff’s skills. Topics: textile technology, labeling, product performance, sustainability of textile processing.

Moreover, the company staff will be trained and updated on the constantly changing reference legislation.


Foreign markets and labeling

  • Labeling: we analyze the accuracy of composition and care labels, since the information to be reported on the label may be different from country to country, depending on the reference standards.
  • Chemical safety: each state has its own national legislation. For this reason, our consulting services take into account the country where your products will be exported.
  • Mechanical safety: our consulting services are based on country standards in order to minimize the risk of strangulation with laces and cords, suffocation with small detachable parts, cut with sharp or pointed parts (especially for children).

Technical specifications

  • Product quality specifications: thanks to our acknowledged experience in this sector, we are able to identify the minimum acceptable requirements for the physical-mechanical performances and for color fastness properties; moreover, we can develop your relevant product quality specifications together with you.
  • Product safety specifications: we study all the chemical and mechanical safety requirements linked to sales market laws, in order to create and constantly update the company RSL (i.e. Restricted Substances List).
  • Uniforms specifications: we provide all the needed services for the definition of uniforms tenders (procurements of state and non-state bodies), including analysis on physical-mechanical fabric performances and garment style. Our supply specifications provide descriptions, technical specifications and graphic sketches. At the end, we check the conformity of supplied materials to the specifications.

Chemical management

Our system supports companies to manage and minimize the chemical risk of textile supply chain processing, in order to adapt products and processes to the companies’ RSL and MRSL (Manufacturing Restricted Substances List).

The improvement process is based on standard procedures to be implemented within the company, concerning:
1) the strict control of chemical products purchase;
2) the compatibility and traceability in storing and handling chemical products;
3) the repeatability of production;
4) the control and awareness in managing environmental aspects (discharges, emissions, waste).

At the end of the process, the company receives an annual attestation of system compliance, which allows to face a textile market increasingly oriented towards the environmental sustainability.
