SATRA to hold footwear testing workshop
The programme will cover important aspects of footwear testing.
SATRA will be holding an open day on 13th December 2017 in Kettering, UK, to provide information on the importance of testing footwear, the legislation behind the reasons for testing and the key properties that are assessed.
The programme for this event has been designed for both members and non-members, including manufacturers, sourcing companies and retailers of all types of footwear and materials. It is ideal for newly appointed members of staff, as well as more experienced technologists and buyers.
The open day will include a presentation by SATRA experts on the importance of testing, which will be followed by a tour of SATRA’s testing laboratories. Talks will also be given on the key aspects of slip resistance, whole shoe tests, heel attachment, adhesive bonds, colour and light fastness, water resistance, and trims and fasteners.
After the final presentation, delegates will have the opportunity to discuss any particular issues they may have in private with a SATRA expert and familiarise themselves with our facilities and procedures. A buffet lunch will be included during the day.
