SATRA organises footwear open day
The SATRA open day will reveal the legislation behind footwear testing and the procedures involved.
SATRA will be holding a footwear open day to provide an introduction to testing on Wednesday 21st August 2019 in Kettering, UK. This programme is for SATRA members and non-members, and has been designed for manufacturers, sourcing companies and retailers of all types of footwear and materials. It will be ideal for newly appointed members of staff, as well as more experienced technologists and buyers.
The event will provide delegates with information about the legislation behind the reasons for testing and the key properties that are assessed. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet SATRA’s footwear experts and familiarise themselves with our facilities and procedures.
The day will begin with an overview on the importance of testing, followed by a tour of SATRA’s laboratories and presentations on a variety of topics, including slip resistance, whole shoe testing, heel attachment, adhesive bonds, colour and light fastness, water resistance, and trims and fasteners. After the event concludes, delegates will be invited to stay to discuss any particular issues they may have in private with one of our experts. A buffet lunch will be included.
