Improving Fiber ID - AATCC releases Textile Fiber Supplement

Jun '10
AATCC - American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists releases the Textile Fiber Supplement for complete fiber identification and analysis. Every day, textile technologists, crime labs, and customs agents are faced with identifying fibers from a variety of sources. With more than 30 generic classes of fibers and thousands of trade names, positive and definitive identification can be daunting.

AATCC's Textile Fiber Supplement provides new tools and reference data for fiber identification. The Supplement is a companion document to AATCC Test Methods 20 (Fiber Identification: Qualitative) and 20A (Fiber Identification: Quantitative). These methods are recognized around the world and are particularly valued for their longitudinal and cross-sectional reference images of more than 60 fiber types.

The supplement adds color, polarized, first-order red plate micrographs; Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) curves; and other resources to aid in identifying both common and novelty fibers.

Information on refractory fibers such as meta-aramids, para-aramids, PBI, and melamine is included. The Supplement also provides guidance for analyzing the structure of metallic fibers.

Fiber sources for the reference material in the Fiber Identification Supplement include standardized and readily-available multifiber fabrics. This means labs can easily check their results against the Supplement data, using the same fibers.

Based on data from the ongoing AATCC Fiber Identification and Analysis Proficiency Program, the Supplement provides a table of interlab variations for quantitative analysis of various fiber blends. This table helps lab personnel understand how much variation may be expected for analysis of a particular blend. Blends with particularly high variability may necessitate additional testing for verification.
