AATCC, a leading not-for-profit association serving textile professionals, is set to conduct a textile testing workshop on May 16 and 17, 2018, at the AATCC headquarters in Research Triangle Park, US. AATCC provides test method development, quality control materials, and professional networking for members in about 50 countries throughout the world.

The workshop is a must-attend event for companies involved in 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 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.

Sessions will be conducted on basic colour theory and measurement. Participants will be shown how to use the AATCC gray scales for staining and colour change and the AATCC chromatic transference scale.

ASTM methods, D1424 standard test method for tearing strength of fabrics by falling-pendulum (Elmendorf-Type) apparatus and D5034 breaking strength and elongation of textile fabrics (Grab Test) will also be discussed and demonstrated. (GK)
