HVI - COTTON FIBER LABORATORIES

HVI - COTTON FIBER LABORATORIES

The value and negotiation of cotton production is directly affected by fiber quality. To assist our clients in this process, we have four laboratories where we carry out tests with High Volume Instrument (HVI) technology, which assures the quality of the cotton and where we perform yarn classification. Our analyses provides for a complete verification of the product by evaluating items such as strength, fiber length and thickness, short fiber index, elongation, maturity, brightness, degree of yellowing, and degree of impurity. We conduct approximately 4.5 million tests with cotton samples per crop, serving more than 50% of the Brazilian market.
