Textile examination techniques including fault and defect analysis are available for greige to finished goods.
The tests include, among other things:
- Material and construction analysis
- Qualitative and quantitative chemical analysis of organic and inorganic fibre adjacent substances, among other things, of portions extractable in water or in organic solvents
- Size analysis, ash, iron and hardness determination
- Analysis of condition after pretreatment, dyeing or final finishing, eg pH determination, conductivity, surface-active substances, degree of polymerisation, wetting behaviour, fogging test, formaldehyde content and much more
The analysis of faults and defects is part of the textile examination techniques and is mainly focused on surface and fibre-microscopic analyses combined with the digital microphotography, which is imperative for factual documentation.
