The Certottica laboratories
Testing and chemical analyses are fundamentally important to compliance with current standards and understanding the quality and composition of the chemical products used in manufacturing.
Certottica’s laboratories perform the chemical tests manufacturers need, if they are to comply with an ever growing list of safe-chemical-substance-use standards.
For firms a focus on the chemical composition of materials and related compliance with standards translates into reputational growth across the supply chain and facilitates access to global markets, as certain substances are banned in some jurisdictions.
Certottica has been investing in its chemical laboratory for some time now and offers an interesting range of chemical tests required for optical products sold in the United States, European Union and other markets.

Standards applying to fabrics for UVA factor protection checks
Alongside its chemical laboratory Certottica has also extended its work into other testing fields, including metallographic tests and ageing tests on materials. Metallographic and ageing tests have a multiplicity of applications and are an effective enquiry and research method for the eyewear industry and, therefore, a valid design and quality control medium (defect diagnostics, design checks, checks on product compliance with technical specifications).
Measuring the UV protection factor of fabrics
Transferring its know-how from the optical to the fabrics sector, Certottica offers firms laboratories specialising in measuring fabrics’ UV protection factor (UPF) in accordance with current international standards.
