Spectrum’s Laboratory is a sophisticated facility consisting of Analytical, Quality Control and Application Laboratories. In purview of maintaining and monitoring high quality of products, the laboratory is fully equipped with modern instruments and functions round-the-clock. The Laboratory carries out all the relevant tests at various stages of product life cycle i.e. raw materials, captive intermediates, press cakes and final product along with the real time analysis of multiple samples received during production processes.

The Laboratory is also supported by an independent standards and samples storage facility. Moreover, the analysis data for every sample is recorded and maintained by an internal computerized data management system.  This ensures easy traceability of products and their quality assessments. A synchronized working of all the labs and set-up of high precision instruments ensure that all the chemical testing and reports are thoroughly validated.

The instrumentation facility comprising of multiple sub-sections has instruments such as:

  • GC MS - Agilent, Shimadzu
  • HPLCs with Auto-Sampler - Shimadzu, Waters, Prominance-i
  • GCs - Shimadzu
  • Particle Size Analyzers - Malvern
  • Color Computer Matching Systems - GretagMacbeth, Premiere Colorscan
  • UV Spectrometers - Shimadzu
  • Automated Dyeing Machines - SandoLab
  • Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer - Shimadzu

Some of the tests we carry out as per the AATCC test methods and customer requirements:

  • High Temperature High Pressure Dyeing
  • Assessment of Dye Auxiliaries and Chemicals
  • Dispersion Stability at High Temperature and High Pressure
  • Pre and Post application effects of Dyestuff on Fabrics
  • Mix Colorant Studies
  • Giving inputs to production on Shade, Strength, Particle Size Distribution etc.
