“Textile materials and products manufactured primarily for their technical and performance properties rather than their aesthetic or decorative characteristics.

“Technical textiles” is the term given to textile products manufactured for non-aesthetic purposes, where function is the primary criterion. Technical textiles consist of all those textile-based products, which are used principally for their performance, functional characteristics, technical properties, and used for non-consumer (i.e. industrial) applications rather than for their appearance, aesthetics, and decorative characteristics.

MANTRA’s analytical laboratory is fully equipped with sophisticated testing instruments.

Technical Textiles materials are tested for their functional characteristics of particular sample as per their end use requirement. Sample under test may be in form of Filaments, Yarns, Fabrics, Composites, Coated fabrics, Nonwovens, Geotextiles, Quilts etc

MANTRA’s analytical laboratory consist of instruments such as, Bursting Strength Tester Flex Tester, Shower Tester, Spray Rating Tester, Lister, Cover Stock Wetback, WIRA TOG Tester.
