Topic of your interest
In addition to the washing agent used, the wash cloth used has a great influence on the washing performance of the automatic washing systems. Within the scope of this certification, wash cloths are tested for mechanical parameters and the retention capacity of washing agents.
The certified wash cloths are entered into the FograCert database and published. On the product itself you can indicate the certification in the form of a FograCert logo.

You would like to have your wash cloth certified (validity: 5 years) or renew an existing certification?
We need from you
a written order to carry out the certification,
8 rolls of the wash cloth with a width of 765 mm. This width is necessary because, among other things, printing tests on the Speedmaster XL 75 (Heidelberger Druckmaschinen) are carried out at Fogra.
After receipt of the order by Fogra you will receive an order confirmation which contains all details of the test period, contact person and price. The processing period for certification is approx. 4 to 6 weeks.
The following material tests are carried out:
Thickness and basis weight
Tensile strength (breaking strength and max. elongation)
Furthermore, printing tests are carried out in which the following parameters are checked:
Evaluation of the blanket after cleaning cycle
Washing agent residue after restart
In case of a successful certification we issue a certificate and list your wash cloth in our FograCert database.
