Comprehensive introduction to textile quality testing

Textile testing independent third-party testing laboratories, with measurement qualifications, textile fabric testing content.

Physical Property: density, yarn count, gram weight, twist, yarn strength, fabric structure, fabric thickness, loop length, fabric cage coefficient, fabric shrinkage or weave shrinkage, curved and slanted deformation, tensile strength, tear strength, seam slip, seam strength, bond strength, single yarn strength, yarn strength per unit of linear density, anti-hook wire, crease return angle test, hardness test, water resistance test, leakage resistance, elasticity and return strength, breathability, water vapor permeability, incineration. Stiffness test, water repellency test, leakage resistance, elasticity and recovery, air permeability, water vapor permeability, burnability, swelling strength, abrasion resistance test, pilling resistance, etc.


Color fastness (Colorfastness): color fastness to soaping (small sample), color fastness to rubbing, color fastness to chlorine water, color fastness to non-chlorine bleaching, color fastness to dry cleaning, color fastness to actual washing (garment, fabric), color fastness to perspiration, color fastness to water, color fastness to light, color fastness to seawater, color fastness to saliva

Dimensional Stability: machine wash dimensional stability, hand wash dimensional stability, dry cleaning dimensional stability, steam dimensional stability

Apperance After Wesh: machine wash appearance stability, hand wash appearance stability, dry cleaning appearance stability

Chemical Analysis: PH content, formaldehyde content, lead content, azo dye test, heavy metal content test, water absorption, moisture content, odor, cotton mercerization, hot press, dry heat, sublimation, acid spot, alkali spot, water spot, phenolic yellowing, etc.

Fiber Content Analysis: cotton, hemp, wool (sheep, rabbit), silk, polyester, viscose, spandex, nylon, lint content, etc.

Commonly used textile testers are
