Innovation & documentation
We use more than 15 different machines for development, eco-labelling and test of the products. We test everything regarding the functionalities and qualities of the microfiber products. We do it to test thoroughly and quality assure newly developed products - when documentation is important.
How big difference is there between a microfiber and a cotton mop?
Watch the video – and the big difference between our high-end microfiber mop Mikro Vision Mop and a cotton mop.
The test machine is for comparing the cleaning performance.
See the test below:
NMF makes use of in-house laboratory as far as possible when it comes to development and test of products. More than 15 different machines test everything from washing test, friction test, asbsorption test, strength test of the piece goods to autoclave other things.
In the laboratory the products are being tested in a secured and bounded area. It makes it possible to give documentation of the bacteria pickup rate for different bacteria and for how fast they are being decomposed in the product.
All bacteria reports for NMF Nordic Swan eco-labelled products are available for download.
The difference between a standard microfiber cloth (yellow) and Tentax Nano-Ag+ (red) is shown on the picture. On the standard microfiber cloth bacteria grow on the cloth, and the Tentax Nano-Ag+ decomposes the bacteria by means of the silver ions. Download the data sheed for Tentax Nano-Ag+ here to see the demolition time of the bacteria.
Autoclave is a specially developed machine for sterilisation of products.
The product is being exposed to saturated water vapour with a temperature of 1210C at ca 2 bars in 30 minutes.
Autoclave is being used to a great extent in the Health Care industry.
Under the product information it is listed, which NMF products that tolerate autoclave.
Our machine most used is Electrolux (W5105H) industrial washing machine, which is used for washing test of the products in order to guarantee, that the produkt tolerate the stated number of washes under the hard washing conditions.
The same detergent is used every time to ensure a consistent washing test.
Detergent used: Diversey Claxprofi36A1, Ph at 11.
