AATCC unveils new UV fabric colour reference solution

AATCC’s Ultraviolet (UV) Calibration Reference Fabric helps ensure accurate color communication throughout the textile supply chain accurately, saving everyone time and money from expensive miscommunications.

Not all reference fabrics are created equal. AATCC’s optically brightened reference fabric has been calibrated to a national standardizing lab. In fact, AATCC’s optically brightened reference fabric is designed to give more accurate measurements than the non-textile UV calibration plaques usually supplied with a spectrophotometer.

This UV Calibration Reference Fabric provides a target CIE-Whiteness value that can be used to accurately adjust spectrophotometers for measuring optically-brightened textiles, no matter which method an instrument uses to calibrate UV content. And because UV content will be properly calibrated for textiles, users will see more consistent results from one spectrophotometer to another.

In addition, the spectral data from optically-brightened textiles can be exchanged more accurately within the supply chain and digitally-based quality assessments will be more precise and easier to accomplish.
