Synopses & Reviews
The textile industry is becoming an increasingly competitive environment. Differentiating products by quality is particularly important. Testing can be performed both to improve product quality and achieve compliance to international, regional or retailer specific standards. This book provides a comprehensive review of the tests available for fabrics.
The introductory chapters discuss the scope, importance and statistical analysis of fabric testing. Subsequent chapters then review various types of fabric tests such as fabric composition testing, physical and mechanical tests, fabric chemical testing, how to test appearance, permeability, comfort and flammability, as well as dyeing and coloring tests and key issues in testing textile samples.
