Key Standard Test Methods for Performance Clothing 2017: A Complete Overview of the Quality Management Areas Your Business Should Focus on

/EIN News/ -- Dublin, Oct. 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Key Standard Test Methods for Performance Clothing" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

In order to remain competitive in such a saturated and growing marketplace, performance textiles manufacturers are upping their focus on quality control. As a result, testing carried out in-house or by external bodies has become a crucial part of production in order to validate companies' products to the public.

Testing is a valuable aid for textile production, distribution and consumption. And, creating a set of uniformed test procedures enables fabric, textiles and apparel to be evaluated consistently in multiple locations. This, in turn, ensures that the quality of garments sold is safe to use by consumers, fit for purpose, and meets product liability, environmental and other current legislation; preventing product recalls and promoting repeat sales.

This report will review some key standard test methods issued by international and national organisations such as ISO, ASTM, EN, BSI and DIN etc, which can be employed to evaluate properties such as microbial properties, physiological comfort, waterproofing and breathability, and tensile/seam/tear strength of performance clothing.

Individual test procedures will be described in detail, as well as the techniques used to evaluate the effectiveness of the above properties, giving you a complete overview of the quality management areas your business should focus on.
