Currently BTRA is working actively with some manufacturers for development of non-woven products and their testing. BTRA now has more than two decades of experience in product development and testing of nonwovens / technical textiles. BTRA annually tests anywhere around 2000 samples of technical textiles out of a total of 16000 + samples in its laboratories, perhaps highest amongst any Govt. funded laboratory in India. BTRA also has the unique advantage of not only testing of technical textiles for their properties but is equipped with polymer laboratory which is essential for raw material tests of many synthetic technical textiles in term of their chemical groups, molecular weights and their structure but also in assessing their performance characteristics.
