Improve Your Testing
Make sure technicians and labs are at peak performance with training and tools, proficiency testing, and UV calibration.
Proficiency Testing Programs
Dependable test results aren’t an accident. The best labs test themselves regularly and AATCC Proficiency Testing Programs help you do just that. Anonymously gauge your laboratory’s performance against that of hundreds of others around the globe.
Ultraviolet (UV) Calibration Reference Fabric
This reference fabric increases the accuracy and quality of electronic data communication within the textile industry by facilitating the interchange of spectral data throughout supply chains. It provides a target CIE-whiteness value so a
user can properly position the spectrophotometer's UV filter, regardless of the instrument geometry or adjustment methodology.
