ATCC has released a new guide, Textile Fiber Supplement, for fiber identification and analysis.
The supplement, according to AATC, is designed to be a guide for textile technologists, crime labs, and customs agents who are faced with identifying fibers from a variety of sources.
The supplement is a companion document to AATCC Test Methods 20 (Fiber Identification: Qualitative) and 20A (Fiber Identification: Quantitative).
AATCC is a not-for-profit association serving textile professionals since 1921. Headquartered in Research Triangle Park, N.C., the organization provides test method development, quality control materials, and professional networking for members in about 60 countries throughout the world.
