    Technical Manual of AATCC

8
Types of AATCC Methods Available
  • Biological Properties
  • Colorfastness
  • Dyeing Properties
  • Evaluation Procedures
  • Identification Analysis
  • Physical Properties

9
AATCC Methods Used Widely in Global Textile Trade
  • Today, purchase contracts specify in detail how
    goods must be tested, inspected, and conform to
    social compliance and security issues
  • In both domestic and international markets,
    acceptance and rejection of textiles are based on
    meeting performance specifications
  • Product specifications should be considered as
    early as the design phase!
  • AATCC methods are used extensively for evaluating
    raw materials, in-process testing, as well as
    final product testing

10
Test Methods Materials
  • AATCC provides the AATCC Technical Manual
    containing AATCC test methods to over 60
    countries including Honduras
  • AATCC sells quality control materials to more
    than 60 countries, including Honduras
  • Companies should purchase only AATCC approved
    products, such as standard detergents and gray
    scales, to insure that they comply properly with
    testing requirements and certifications
  • The new edition of the AATCC Technical Manual
    should be acquired every year, as methods are
    continually updated!
  • Test methods and quality control materials may be
    ordered on-line from www.aatcc.org
