July 28, 2014

UL Consumer Products Hong Kong Laboratory can now provide professional wetcleaning services for textile and apparel products, in accordance with test standard ISO 3175-4:2003.

Professional wetcleaning is an ideal test method for textiles using water and special detergents to simulate the washing process.

ISO 3175-4:2003 specifies simulating professional wetcleaning procedures (washing and drying according to the care symbols in the care label), using a reference machine for fabrics and apparels. It comprises a standardized process for normal materials, a mild process for sensitive materials, and a very mild process for especially sensitive materials at the proper washing level.
