Industrial laundering is a very aggressive process that damages a normal piece of clothing. The clothing that undergoes this type of laundering must have an improved resistance while maintaining its quality over time and resisting the harsh conditions of industrial laundering, which differs greatly from domestic wash.
In the industrial laundering process there are many aggressive agents, such as the wash temperature, the use of detergents and chemicals, the drying temperature and pressing temperature.
In order to guarantee the resistance of our products, Resuinsa has obtained a quality certificate in textile products suitable for industrial laundering, based on the norm UNE-EN ISO 15797:2004.
In order to obtain this certification, the fabrics must be resistant to products such as detergents without optical whitening and water peroxide as a bleaching agent. Textile items must resist 167ºF washing and several drying and pressing processes.
The certificate grants quality criteria such as tensile strength, laminar mass, absorption capacity, degree of white and degree of polymerization (GDP).
Resuinsa is the first company in the world to obtain this industrial laundering certification, anticipating the needs of the sector and taking the leading role in terms of textile R&D&i.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
The aim of the standard is to define world-wide recognized requirements that ensure organic status of textiles, from harvesting of the raw materials, through environmentally and socially responsible manufacturing up to labelling in order to provide a credible assurance to the end consumer.
In compliance with the hygiene and cleanliness requirements of the Royal French Decree 2000-164 dated February 23, 2000, pillows with feather-down filling must follow certain hygiene norms, determined by the oxygen index and the microbiological status, according to the European standard UNE-EN ISO 1162:1997, the norm UNE-EN ISO 1884:1999 and UNE-EN ISO 12935:2002
Resuinsa’s feather-down filled pillows meet these requirements.
In accordance with the UNE-EN ISO 12952:1998 standard, fibre-filled pillows must be ignition resistant under the action of a cigarette or a small flame (flammability) with a match. Resuinsa’s pillows meet all the necessary safety standards.
To harmonize the European standards on intra-community market products, an established common set value is established in order to define warmth and thermal resistance of the materials that are usually employed in the textile sector.
The TOG value describes the duvet’s thermal capacity, and it is calculated by multiplying by ten the thermal difference between two material surfaces, when the exposed heat is equal to a Watt per square meter. The higher the TOG value, the higher the heat retention capacity.
Resuinsa holds a TOG value certificate for every duvet, with either synthetic or natural filling, in accordance with the European standard UNE-EN 31092:2006.
