AATCC test methods, procedures, and monographs are developed by research committees through research, testing, and discussion, often taking several years of work. Simplicity, reproducibility, applicability, cost to perform, and the time to perform are all important considerations. The content of many AATCC standards form the basis of equivalent ISO documents.
Compare results with hundreds of other labs. AATCC Proficiency Testing Programs (PTP) support lab certification and continuous improvement initiatives. Samples are selected to provide consistent results in a meaningful range for each test method or evaluation procedure.
AATCC also provides other programs and services to help labs with training, certification, and continuous improvement.
Standard test methods require standardized equipment and materials. Laundering is no exception. To get consistent results for reliable decisions, use detergent, ballast, and washing machines that meet the specifications in AATCC test methods, procedures, and monographs.
