A parenting magazine’s annual test revealed that rain coveralls from a premium Scandinavian brand were leaking – they had dropped from first to last place in the waterproofing rating. The company had to act quickly to save their reputation for high quality.
LOXY was called in and came down to identify the problem and suggest solutions. After thorough analysis a plan was developed. The main source of leakage was seams that were not properly sealed, due to process flaws and badly chosen materials.
The major change presented to the production company was a new requirement specification for seamsealing tapes, for reflectives and for pipings. LOXY also specified the necessary changes in the set-up of the production process.
Before production started for the upcoming collection, all changes that LOXY advised the production company to make were adopted. Careful quality controls were carried out. When the next round of magazine tests were published, the coveralls were back at their place as best in test.
At our own test lab in Hong Kong we can find the right match of seam-sealing and reflexive tapes with different materials. And make sure it holds up to the most demanding standards.
