AATCC Mid-Year Supplement includes revised, new standards

Posted July 7, 2021

 

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – The 2021 AATCC Mid-Year Supplement to the AATCC Manual of International Test Methods and Procedures includes four revised, one editorially revised and two new standards.

 

RA63’s TM35 has been updated to clarify its reference images and align its history section with the AATCC style guide.

 

RA36 has included three standards related to color evaluations.  For those active in making color decisions, these updates for EP7, EP9 and EP14 are not to be missed.

 

RA31 has introduced a new odor method with the addition of TM211. This amazing new method provides a quantifiable means for evaluating the reduction of odor generated from textiles treated with antibacterial finishes.

 

To continually support the laundering needs of the testing community, RA88 has updated LP1 to provide the use of a self-fabric as Ballast Type 4. For many, this is a game-changer.

 

For those following the emerging trends in smart-textiles, RA111 is excited to add a four-point probe option to EP13.

 

These all are highly anticipated additions that will help users stay at the forefront of testing and product innovation.

 

Please purchase the 2021 AATCC Mid-Year Supplement to get a copy of the latest standards available from AATCC. If you want to be part of the exciting work being done to bring standards to the industry, please join an AATCC research committee.
