This workshop has been designed for textile industry professionals who are responsible for product evaluation, specifications, and quality control for apparel and textile materials.
Attendees will learn how to properly perform and interpret test results for approximately 20 colorfastness and physical properties test methods and evaluation procedures. Colorfastness tests to be addressed include crocking, light, washing, and perspiration.
Tests for evaluating physical properties include dimensional change (home laundering and accelerated methods), water repellency and resistance, and appearance retention. AATCC staff will discuss and demonstrate these procedures and registrants will be involved in hands-on participation.
Sessions will be conducted on basic color theory and measurement as well as fiber identification. Participants will be shown how to use the AATCC Gray Scales for Staining and Color Change, the AATCC Chromatic Transference Scale, and Xenon Reference Fabric.
John Crocker with SDL Atlas, who actively participates in both AATCC and ASTM test method committees, will discuss AATCC Test Method 195, Liquid Moisture Management Properties of Textile Fabrics, and ASTM D4966, Standard Test Method for Abrasion Resistance of Textile Fabrics (Martindale Abrasion Tester Method). ASTM D3786, Standard Test Method for Bursting Strength of Textile Fabrics—Diaphragm Bursting Strength Tester Method will be presented by AATCC staff.
AATCC, the Association of Textile, Apparel & Materials Professionals, is the world’s leading not-for-profit association serving textile professionals since 1921. AATCC, headquartered in Research Triangle Park, N.C., USA, provides test method development, quality control materials, and professional networking for members in about 60 countries throughout the world.
