Introduction to Textile Testing Workshop

AATCC, ASTM, and ISO textile testing methods are covered in lecture, demonstrations, and hands-on practice. Learn to make better testing and approval decisions and get tips for more accurate testing.

Learn AATCC, ASTM, and ISO textile testing methods for better testing and approval decisions, and more accurate, reproducible results. Lecture, demonstrations, and hands-on practice.

Next Workshop will be held in 2021

If you are responsible for product evaluation, specifications, and quality control for apparel and textile materials, this workshop is a must for you. You will learn how to properly perform and interpret test results for approximately 20 colorfastness and physical properties test methods and evaluation procedures.  AATCC staff will discuss and demonstrate these procedures and registrants will be involved in hands-on participation.

Attendance is limited; early registration is encouraged. Registration includes luncheons, break refreshments, and a copy of the AATCC Technical Manual.

In addition to the workshop, a new supplemental session of FM100 color vision screening and certification will be offered. These sessions will take place the day before and after the workshop at the AATCC Technical Center, with spots capped at five screenings per day. Participants who complete the test will receive a certificate with their FM100 color vision score and the test date. An additional fee and separate registration is required. Participants have the option to receive a one-time discounted rate for the FM100 Hue Kit, bundled with the testing. Spots are extremely limited – registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. View the Color Vision Screening tab for information on pricing.  You MUST be registered to attend the Introduction to Textile Testing Workshop to participate in the color vision screening.
