Department of Textile and Leather

Department of Textile and Leather

The department of Textile and Leather is an integrated part of the Faculty of Chemistry and Petrochemical of Standard Research Institute. There are a wide range of laboratories in this department for testing a variety of textile and leather materials. Moreover, the department meets the requirements of technical-scientific services for the textile industry and users. A team of academic staff with specialist qualifications and highly skilled and experienced technical staff are able to analyze and assist in solving the numerous technical problems faced by the industry.
The mission statement of the department includes:


  • Conducting experiments on products subject to mandatory and optional standards
  • Undertaking research projects in relevant areas (esp. conducting research activities to enhance the quality of products and services and to improve production methods and industries efficiency)
  • Publishing the results of research and scientific activities through publications, journals, articles, etc.
  • Cooperating in developing national and international standards and responding to ISO’s Standards Draft
  • Providing scientific and technical services to firms which are not able to obtain standard certification
  • Providing consulting services to applicants
  • Training and retraining of quality control staffs
  • Holding scientific workshops, seminars, congress and expeditions
  • Collaborating in evaluation of colleague laboratories according to the Executive Order No. R/208/111 and Standard ISO / IEC 17025

Standard test methods for especial products



The standard research institute as the most important research and research authority of the standardization system in the country as well as the bridge between the centers of production and application of science, with the aim of completing the scientific chain and gaining national trust in products and services, is seeking to create the appropriate and appropriate context. Acquiring the necessary tools, while guiding the universities and research centers to meeting the scientific requirements of standardization, underpins the "transformation of scientific findings into standards" and "development of research-based standards" in order to introduce and transfer scientific advances to industries, service centers and ultimately at the level. Society provides. There are 4 research institutes, 15 research groups, 2 virtual research groups and more than 110 specialized laboratories in the standard research institute, providing the necessary background for research.
