ASTM International’s Committee D13 develops test methods and specifications for textile materials. In general, AATCC methods and procedures focus on colorfastness, wet testing, and chemical properties. ASTM tests evaluate physical properties of textiles.
AATCC and ASTM have produced several joint publications.
