In today’s rapidly changing market, Tech-Wear must be sure that our products meet quality and safety requirements, while also help clients to better understand what they are buying. Tech-Wear work through the establishment of its in-house testing laboratory to serve our production departments to ensure that every process of products meet the quality and standard requirements as well as provide clients with fast, economic, professional testing services.
Our newly built in-house laboratory and well-trained team can carry out a variety of testing and evaluation for different materials, workmanship, and finished product.
In addition to in-house lab, Tech-Wear work closely with the third part labs for testing and certification of our products. Tech-Wear can apply for testing and certifications on behalf of clients and help clients get products certificated by the third part lab in the most convenient, professional and costs-saving way.
Tech-Wear have been working closely with these third party laboratories.

This International Standard specifies general performance requirements for ergonomics, innocuousness, size designation, ageing, compatibility and marking of protective clothing and the information to be supplied by the manufacturer with the protective clothing.
This International Standard is only intended to be used in combination with other standards containing requirements for specific protective performance and not on a stand-alone basis.
This International Standard specifies requirements for high visibility clothing which is capable of visually signalling the user’s presence. The high visibility clothing is intended to provide conspicuity of the wearer in any light condition when viewed by operators of vehicles or other mechanized equipment during daylight conditions and under illumination of headlights in the dark.
High visibility clothing is grouped into three classes related to risk assessment. Each class shall have minimum areas of high visibility materials incorporated in the garment.
Class 3:Highest level
-Minimum background material 0.8㎡
-Minimum Retroreflective material 0.2㎡
Class 2:Medium level
-Minimum background material 0.5㎡
-Minimum Retroreflective material 0.13㎡
Class 1:Lowest level
-Minimum background material 0.14㎡
-Minimum Retroreflective material 0.1㎡
This European standard concerns protective clothing against rain, wind and cold at temperatures higher than -5°C. This standard specifies the requirements and test methods applied to the materials and seams of the protective clothing against the effects of foul weather (for example, rain or snow), fog and humidity.The requirements of the EN343 include strength of garment components-tensile,tear,seam strength, shrinkage and the follows:
X: resistance to water penetration class
Y: water vapour resistance class
R: ready made garment rain tower test, optional
This European Standard is published to achieve a common basis in Europe for requirements and test methods for protective clothing ensembles and garments against cold in the interest of especially manufacturers, test institutes and end-users. The measured properties and their subsequent classification are intended to ensure an adequate protection level under different user conditions. Thermal insulation of the ensemble or garment and the air permeability are the essential properties to be tested and marked on the label.
This European Standard specifies requirements and test methods for the performance of garments for protection against the effects of cool environments above −5 °C (see Annex C). These effects comprise not only low air temperatures, but also humidity and air velocity.
This European Standard is a high visibility standard that only applies to the rail industry in the UK. The standard is based on the European Norm EN 20471:2013, and garments must comply to Class 2 High Visibility. The standard states the following: ‘high visibility clothing worn by people on the lineside or on or near the line should conform to a single standard for the colour and luminance of background material and that this standard will accord with the detail contained within BS EN 20471:2013 high visibility clothing – Test methods and requirements (ISO 20471:2013).
EN 17353 is an EU standard that imposes requirements on enhanced visibility workwear for employees who are working in medium to high risk areas. Workwear that is certified in accordance with 17353 is suitable for employees who need to be seen but who do not work in a place for which the risk analysis of the working area means that they must wear personal protection clothing that is certified according to EN ISO 20471.
EN 17353:2020 standard supersedes two separate standards: EN 1150:1999 – ‘Protective clothing. Visibility clothing for non-professional use. Test methods and requirements’ – and EN 13356:2001 – ‘Visibility accessories for non-professional use. Test methods and requirements, both of which have now been withdrawn from use.
EN 17353 brings together elements of each of the withdrawn standards. However, all products meeting the requirements of the standard are no longer considered in terms of their use. Instead, their suitability in providing protection in medium risk situations is defined by their enhanced visibility properties.
The EN 17353 standard has also been devised to allow manufacturers more freedom in the design of products, given that enhanced visibility garments and devices are not intended for high-risk situations. Additionally, garments and devices are permitted for use in daylight (day) conditions only, dark (night) conditions only, or for both daylight and dark conditions.
This standard specifies requirements for clothing that conducts electricity. This clothing (combined with e.g. shoes that conduct electricity) forms part of a completely earthed system. The clothing prevents sparks and therefore explosions.
Clothing made to this standard is only accepted in combination with the standard for flame retardant clothing (531 or 11612). This clothing is worn in explosion-hazard environments – if there is a risk of explosion, there is also a risk of fire. This clothing may not be worn in oxygen-enriched environments. It does not provide protection against electric shocks (mains voltage).
The standard specifies the performance requirements for the limited flame spread properties of materials, material assemblies and protective clothing in order to reduce the possibility of the clothing burning and therefore avoiding a hazard. Additional requirements for clothing are also specified.
Index 1 (flame spread, flaming debris and afterglow properties)
Index 2 (as index 1 plus hole formation properties)
Index 3 ( as index 2 plus after flame properties)
This international standard specifies minimum basic safety requirement and test methods for protective clothing for use in welding and allied processes （exclude hand protection).
Class 1 is against less hazardous welding techniques and situations, causing lower levels of spatter and radiant heat.
Class 2 is against more hazardous welding techniques and situations, causing higher levels of spatter and radiant heat.
Protective clothing to protect against heat and flame. This standard is describing minimum
requirements for industrial workers exposed to heat. This means short contact with flame and with at least one type of heat (convective, radiant, large molten metal splashes or a combination of these).
This Standard also defines some minimum parameters that the fabrics have to comply with: Tear resistance, tear strength, burst strength and seam strength.
Performance requirements for the chemical protective clothing offering limited protective
performance against liquid chemicals.
This standard specifies the minimum requirements for limited use and re-usable limited performance chemical protective clothing.
IEC 61482 Protective clothing against the thermal hazards of an electric arc.

EN 13758-2 is a product standard that protects the skin against the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. Clothing that is certified with this standard is marked with an ultraviolet protection factor (UPF-value), which indicates the level of protection provided. The level of protection depends on multiple factors, including the fabric’s thickness, density and colour. However, the fabric’s protective effect is impacted by wear and tear, and when the clothing is stretched.
This European standard was developed to establish requirements for kneepads in order to best protect the user’s knees. Kneepads are tested on the basis of different requirements, such as impact absorption, their ability to distribute pressure over the entire surface while kneeling as well as their ability to prevent sharp or pointed objects from penetrating the material.
