Tilsatec achieve UKAS accreditation to ISO 17025

Performance, reliability, accuracy and consistency

Tilsatec is a UK manufacturer with a long history in developing technical yarns and materials for PPE, specialising in cut resistant hand and arm protection able to engineer high levels of performance and mechanical protection into the product range.

Having recently added to the in house manufacturing capabilities, allowing for increased scope in R&D and product innovation, Tilsatec are proud to have also established a UKAS accredited mechanical testing laboratory. The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the sole accreditation body recognized by Government to assess, against internationally recognized standards, organisations that provide testing services.

Laboratory accreditation uses the standard ISO 17025 to assess a laboratory’s ability to produce precise, accurate tests and data including:

  • Technical competence of staff
  • Validity and appropriateness of test methods
  • Suitability and maintenance of test equipment
  • Quality assurance of test data

Achieving UKAS accreditation demonstrates the Tilsatec laboratory’s competence, accuracy and impartiality to perform reliable testing on both raw materials and finished products as well as carry out ongoing due diligence testing.

With the new facility the company now has full circle operations from yarn production, to PPE manufacture, to testing all under one roof providing customers with a holistic, all-encompassing offering to meet their PPE requirements.
