ISO15797

For washers and Leasers

You can rely on our washing recommendations: They are based on strict ISO 15797-compliant washing tests that are performed in our in-house washing laboratories. The tests of materials and garments are performed in industrial washing machines and dryers with capacities of 24 kg and 20 kg.

We wash and dry both fabrics and samples of finished products. The tests provide textile service providers in particular information about how they can industrially wash and dry protective clothing from HB.

In addition to our industrial washing recommendations we also indicate the wearing comfort of our products as per the following directional table:


Wearing ComfortFall/HapticsWeight
strong, textile touch≥ 360 g/m²
smooth< 360 g/m²
very soft≤ 180 g/m²
