Product Testing

Brands, retailers and manufacturers are required to perform a number of tests to ensure that products entering the market place are safe, fit for purpose and meet global legislation.  Complying with International legislation can be a challenge, we are able to offer support and assistance regarding International product laws.  

BLC is a UKAS accredited product testing laboratory.  We can test to national, European and International standards.  We offer a wide range of analytical services and tests which include accessories testing, automotive testing, chemical testing, flammability testing, footwear testing, garment testing, hardware testing, jewellery testing, leather product testing, mould testing and upholstery testing.

Testing services include physical and chemical testing for furniture and automotive upholstery, floor tiles, footwear, leathergoods, bags, gloves, garments, belts, watches, leather product testing etc.  Whole product testing such as fastening and zip function, seam strength, dry cleaning, handle attachment, flammability and much more are also available.

BLC is one of the fastest product testing laboratories in Europe and our aim is to deliver results within 3-5 working days.  Established for over 90 years we have the technical pedigree in product testing to ensure fast accurate support.

Whilst many product testing laboratories are only able to supply simple pass/fail test reports; BLC is able to offer additional support and advice immediately upon report of a sample failure.  In addition our experience of different material testing means that we ensure the appropriate test methods are used at all times.
