The design, manufacture and export of textiles and apparel products is one of the biggest industries in Sri Lanka, and one which plays a key role in advancing the country’s economy. Sri Lanka has built its competitive edge on value-addition rather than cheap production cost, with greater emphasis on product quality and its ability to manufacture niche products. We offer several analytical techniques for textiles such as surface and structural characterisation of fibres, yarns and fabrics. We can determine the thermal stability and thermal transitions as well as provide qualitative and quantitative analysis of elemental compositions of textiles, paints and pigments. Some textile applications that are possible to be carried out at the SLINTEC premises using the equipment available for analysis are given below.
