Fibre Content / Composition Test

Fibre Content / Composition Test Analysis of fibre content: Qualitative analysis Quantitative analysis (for blended material) Qualitative analysis By Flame/burn test By solubility test Reaction of Fibres to Flame Solubility of Fibres (Method-AATCC 20-2000) S=Soluble I=Insoluble P=Plastic mass formed S/P=Soluble/Plastic mass formed N=Nylon 6 is soluble but Nylon 6/6 is insoluble Quantitative analysis of different […]

Crease Resistance & Recovery Test

Crease Resistance & Recovery Test Crease: This is a fabric defect evidenced by a break line or mark or fold in a fabric generally caused by a sharp fold. Crease appears when the fabric is distorted in such a manner that part of it is stretched beyond its elastic recovery. During creasing the upper surface […]

Textile Testing : Pilling Test of Fabric

Pilling Test of Fabric | Pilling Phenomena Pilling: Pilling is formation of little balls of fibers (pills) on the surface of a fabric which is caused by abrasion in wear. Pilling is the tendency of fibers to come loose from a fabric surface and form balled particles of fiber. Causes of Pilling: Due to wear and […]

Abrasion and Abrasion Resistance Test

Abrasion and Abrasion Resistance Test Abrasion:  Abrasion is one aspect of wear and is the rubbing away of the component fibers and yarns of the fabric. Abrasion may be classified as follows- Plane or flat abrasion-A flat area of material is abraded. Edge abrasion-This kind of abrasion occurs at collars and folds. Flex abrasion-In this […]

Fabric Width and Thickness Test

  Fabric Width and Thickness Test Textile Testing : Main steps for textile testing : Checking raw materials Monitoring production Assessing the final product Investigation of faulty material Product development and research Different fabric tests :  Dimensional Characteristics – A) Length, B) Width, C) Thickness Threads/Inch – EPI, PPI, CPI, WPI Count- Warp & Weft […]

Crease Resistance and Recovery Test | Shirley Crease Recovery Tester

  Crease Resistance and Recovery Test Crease:  This is a fabric defect evidenced by a break line or mark or fold in a fabric generally caused by a sharp fold. Crease appears when the fabric is distorted in such a manner that part of it is stretched beyond its elastic recovery.  During creasing the upper […]

Fabric Thread Density Testing

  Fabric Thread Density Testing For Woven Fabric: Picks per inch : The number of weft thread per inch is called picks per inch. Ends per inch : The number of warp thread per inch is called ends per inch. For Knitted Fabric: Courses per cm :  Course is a row of loops across the […]

Fabric Tensile Strength Test | Strip Strength Test | Grab strength test | Tearing strength test | Elmendorf Tear Test | Bursting strength

Fabric Tensile Strength Test Methods Tensile Strength Testing: This is referred to as a strength test where the load is applied along the direction of the test sample.  Tensile strength test of fabric is divided into two groups- Strip test  Grab test. Strip Strength Test: Five fabric samples are extended in a direction parallel to […]

Air Permeability Test by Shirley Air Permeability Apparatus

  Air Permeability Test by Shirley Air Permeability Apparatus   Air permeability: The air permeability of a fabric is the volume of air measured in cubic centimeters passed per second through 1 cm2 of the fabric at a pressure of 1 cm of water.   Air resistance: The air resistance of a fabric is the time […]
