Testing of Fabrics

Determination of fabrics width, thickness, mass per unit area, linear density of yarns; Determination of mechanical properties of fabrics: tenacity, elongation, further tearing; Determination of thread sliding in fabrics, fabrics winkle recovery, fabrics stiffness; Determination of high performance textile materials properties: permeability to air, water, water vapour; Determination of fabrics resistance to surface wetting – Spray test; Determination of abrasion resistance of materials – Martindale method, Accelerotor abrasion test; Determination of fabrics permeability to pilling – Martindale method, IC method – Hoechst; Determination of dimensional changes on washing, ironing, dry cleaning; Burning behaviour of textile materials; Determination of colour fastnesses.
