About Jute



Raw jute quality and jute product's quality testing is essential before export.  The jute products quality includes physical test, chemical and analytic test, biological ingredient test, jute composites test, ecological test.  It also requires well equipped laboratories and testing equipments.  In India particularly in West Bengal many jute testing services are available.  The most reliable and prominent test services are from Indian Jute Industries Research Association (IJIRA).  IJIRA jute test services equipped with modern laboratory equipments and well trained experts team.  






Its are of jute testing services include :

Physical Testing 

  1. Raw jute :  Bundle strength, Single Fibre Tenacity and Elongation, Air-flow Fineness, Single Fibre Fineness, Jute Grading etc..

  2. Slivers : Grist (Count) and count CV%, Irregularity, Fibre length distribution etc..

  3. Yarn :  Grist (Count) and count CV%, Quality ratio and Breaking Elongation, Strength CV%, Twist, Mass Evenness (short-term), Imperfections/faults, d B-L curve, Mechanical properties including creep and stress relaxation, weavability test etc..

  4. Fabrics :  Strength and Br. Elongation, Bursting strength, Abrasion Resistance, Air-permeability, Flexural Rigidity, Drape, Thermal  conductivity, cloth Analysis, Fabric defect analysis, cover etc..

  5. Bag :  Physical properties, construction, Drop test, Seam strength.

  6. Carpet :  Abrasion Resistance

  7. Image Analysis :  Silver colour and cover of fabric, pure size distribution in fabric etc.. 

India is the largest producer of jute goods in the world, while Bangladesh is the largest cultivator of raw jute.  The cultivation of Jute in India is mainly confined to the eastern region states - West Bengal, Bihar, Assam, Tripura, Meghalaya, Orrissa and Uttar Pradesh.  Nearly 50 percent of total raw jute production in India alone figures in West Bengal.
