German companies develop standard to quantify fabrics, non-wovens

German testing equipment supplier Textechno and non-crimp fabric (NCF) maker Saertex (NCFs) have jointly developed global standard ISO 21765:2020 to quantify material behaviour in terms of drapability and deformability. It allows comparable measurement of all relevant parameters related to the deformability and drapability of all kinds of fabrics.

The varieties of fabrics include woven, knitted and NCFs, as well as non-wovens.

The testing on Textechno’s Drapetest precision testing equipment can be particularly useful in carbon fibre recycling, as one of the most efficient applications for recycled carbon fibres will be in non-wovens, Mönchengladbach-based Textechno said in a press release.

Drapetest is the first testing instrument world-wide to quantify not only the force which is required for deforming a fabric, but also the various defects such as gaps, undulation, or wrinkles which can arise due to the deformation, the company claimed.

Textechno developed Drapetest in a publicly funded project which started in 2011, along with partners, including Saerbeck-based Saertex.

“With ISO 21765, we finally have a standardised testing method with world-wide validity,” said Dietmar Möcke, chief technology officer at Saertex.

“It allows us to provide our customers with comparable and reproducible measurement values regarding the draping characteristics of our products,” he added.
