    Woodhead Textiles Series No. 76

     - reviews various types of fabric tests including fabric composition and fabric chemical testing
     - discusses the scope, significance and statistical analysis of fabric testing
     - assesses the importance of fabric testing to both product quality and industry standard compliance

    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. Fabric testing provides a comprehensive review of the tests available for fabrics.

    The book begins with introductory chapters which discuss the scope, importance and statistical analysis of fabric testing. The book then reviews 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 colouring tests and key issues in testing textile samples.

    With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors Fabric testing will be a valuable resource for designers, technologists, quality inspectors and testing institutes in the textile industry. It will also be relevant for academics and students within the textile field.
