AATCC will hold its ‘Introduction to Textile Testing Workshop’ from 3-4 December, at its headquarters this year.

AATCC says 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 color fastness and physical properties test methods and evaluation procedures,” it informs.

Color fastness tests to be addressed include crocking, light, washing, and perspiration.

Tests for evaluating physical properties include dimensional change like 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 the Xenon Reference Fabric.

Others tests like ASTM D 4966 - the Standard Test Method for Abrasion Resistance of Textile Fabrics, D 3512 - the Standard Test Method for Pilling Resistance and Other Related Surface Changes of Textile Fabrics and Random Tumble Pill Tester will also be discussed and demonstrated. (AR)
