Versaperm has quick testing for active wear fabrics

Jul '17
Versaperm has launched a system for testing of fabrics in performance textiles that slashes the testing time to as little as 30 minutes for many fabrics. Moreover, its latest range of equipment can test several fabrics at exactly the same time and to an accuracy in the parts per million (PPM) to parts per billion ranges. ISO testing takes several weeks.

With the market for active wear riding on the crest of a 200 billion dollar wave, the demand for new high performance textiles puts textile producers under considerable pressure to introduce ever smarter fabrics.

Unfortunately, ISO fabric testing takes several weeks to make even a single permeability measurement and this adds a massive time lag into the process. Fortunately, Versaperm has come up with a system that slashes this testing time down to as little as thirty minutes for many fabrics.

Additionally, unlike ISO standard systems, Versaperm's equipment can optionally measure vapour permeability of multiple gasses, such as oxygen and water vapour, through the same sample at the same time.

The system has been designed so that it can be used for both product development and the quality control of fabrics and garments. It is ideally suited to textiles that need to allow the passage of water vapour (breathable), but strongly resist both water droplets and wind.

Once development is completed it may be useful for marketing reasons to demonstrate that the fabric complies with the historical ISO standard, and so Versaperm also produces a conventional gravimetric system for this purpose. (SV)
