Korea Apparel Testing & Research Institute (KATRI hereafter) was established in 1964, and has been making efforts to improve the quality and reliability of textile products, pursuing constant progress as the best testing and analysis laboratory in this field.
Through continuous efforts, KATRI is supporting relevant businesses in the field of testing and evaluation, inspection, quality assurance, technical guidance and training for industrial products as well as textile or fashion products. Especially, it signed MoU(Memorandum of Understanding) with renowned testing and certification partners in the U.S., Japan, Europe, and China to help export-oriented enterprises break through technical barriers and be glocalized since 1990. KATRI also entered into Vietnam recently, following China and Gaesung, North Korea.
At this exhibition, KATRI is going to show assessment method of functionality for cold active or heat release properties materials which draws attention recently. It helps relevant businesses suggest visuals that highlight a distinction by temperature measurement of each part of the body using a thermal manikin and an artificial lighting heat release materials tester.
