Textile Testing Workshop by AATCC

Jun '09
AATCC's Introduction to Textile Testing Workshop will be September 16-17 at its headquarters in Research Triangle Park, N.C., USA. This workshop is ideal for those working in product evaluation, specifications, and quality control for apparel and textile materials.

Some 25 AATCC procedures for evaluating colorfastness and physical properties will be presented and demonstrated. Emphasis will be placed on how to properly conduct and interpret the tests and results. Attendees will get hands-on experience with the methods, equipment, and quality control aids, including the AATCC Gray Scales for Staining and Color Change, the AATCC Chromatic Transference Scale, and Xenon Reference Fabric.

Sessions will be conducted on basic color theory and measurement and fiber identification. The colorfastness tests to be discussed include crocking, light, washing, and perspiration. Tests for evaluating physical properties include dimensional change (home laundering and accelerated methods), skewness, soil release, water repellency and resistance, appearance retention and UV radiation blocked or transmitted by fabrics.

Attendance is limited, so early registration is encouraged. Individuals registering on or before September 1 pay US$999 (US$669 for individual and corporate AATCC members). After September 1, the registration fee increases to US$1049 (US$719 for AATCC members). Registration includes luncheons, break snacks, and a copy of the AATCC Technical Manual. Refunds (minus US$75 cancellation fee) will be issued if cancellations are received on or before September 1.
