Hohenstein Institute America will present a free online seminar on UV protection testing and certification for textiles on Tuesday, May 18, 2010, at 12:00 noon EST. ”Sunlight: Important but a Risk” will focus on the methods to evaluate UV protection and share certification best practices for apparel, outdoor and home textile applications.
Textiles that provide UV protection are growing in popularity in apparel—especially children’s wear and workwear—as well as for awnings and window coverings. Promoting UV protective benefits offers a competitive advantage in these markets; and third-party, independent performance certification reassures consumers that the advertised benefits have been validated.
Hohenstein is a member of the International Test Association for Applied UV Protection, and offers a broad range of UV protection testing methodologies. The webinar is offered free of charge to textile, apparel and retail personnel. For information, contact Dina Dunn, firstname.lastname@example.org.
