TÜV Rheinland Vietnam has expanded its physical testing service capabilities in the country with the implementation of a new, state-of-the-art gas fume chamber at its Softlines Laboratory in Ho Chi Minh City.


The first such facility within the TUV Rheinland Asia Pacific network, it will support customers in Vietnam's second most important export industry -- textiles and apparel -- by providing an essential one-stop testing solution for exporters that want to comply with requirements of international buyers.

"One of the key requirements for many textile and apparel products is to determine the color-fastness of textiles when exposed to nitrogen oxides in the atmosphere that are created by the combustion of gases. With this new equipment, TUV Rheinland Vietnam will enable Vietnam's ambitious and energetic textile and apparel players to meet the needs of local consumers and tap into challenging but extremely lucrative international markets," said Frank Juettner, General Director of TUV Rheinland Vietnam.

With the new equipment, the Softlines Laboratory will test materials according to ISO 105 -- G02, AATCC 23 and GB/T 11039 standards that are essential for customers interested in the EU, US and Asia Pacific Markets.
