AATCC (the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists) has announced that it is set to host a Textile Testing Workshop on September 23-24, 2020, at the AATCC headquarters in Research Triangle Park, US. The association provides test method development, quality control materials, education, and professional networking for a global audience.

Attendees will learn how to properly perform and interpret test results for approximately 20 colourfastness and physical properties test methods and evaluation procedures. Colourfastness tests to be addressed include crocking, light, washing, and perspiration. Tests for evaluating physical properties include dimensional change, skewness, soil release, water repellency and resistance, and appearance retention. AATCC staff will discuss and demonstrate these procedures and registrants will be involved in hands-on participation, according to AATCC.

Sessions will be conducted on colour basics and measurement. Participants will be shown how to use the AATCC grey scales for staining and colour change, and the AATCC chromatic transference scale.

ASTM methods, Standard Test Method for Pilling Resistance and Other Related Surface Changes of Textile Fabrics: Random Tumble Pilling Tester, D 3512; Standard Test Method for Abrasion Resistance of Textile Fabrics (Martindale Abrasion Tester Method), D 4966; and Standard Test Method for Pilling Resistance and Other Related Surface Changes of Textile Fabrics, D4970 will also be discussed and demonstrated.

These sessions will take place the day before and after the workshop at the AATCC technical centre on September 22 and 25, 2020, with spots capped at five screenings per day. Participants who complete the test will receive a certificate with their FM100 colour vision score and the test date. An additional fee and separate registration is required. Participants have the option to receive a one-time discounted rate for the FM100 Hue Kit, bundled with the testing. Spots are extremely limited-registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.
