Test criteria

In addition to the intention to protect the wearer from chemical residues in the product, comprehensive quality checks are performed on the product to guarantee long-term durability.

The test for harmful substances using STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is a prerequisite for the Hohenstein Quality Label for Workwear basic package. This includes tests for chemicals subject to statutory regulation and other chemicals that are harmful to health. The basic package also tests and evaluates comprehensive quality parameters, such as:

  • Colour fastness, e.g. light fastness, perspiration resistance, rubbing fastness and solvent fastness
  • Physical properties, e.g. tensile strength, scrubbing resistance or pilling
  • Performance properties, e.g. watertightness or air permeability
  • Optical properties, e.g. dimensional stability, twisting of seams or the appearance after care treatment

Our Hohenstein Quality Labels for Workwear allow you to adjust flexible enhancement options according to your needs and requirements, for example by checking and evaluating:

  • Fit
  • Breathability
  • UV protection
  • Rental suitability
