AATCC Antibacterial & Odor Control: Marketing & Technology Advancements Conference
October 16, 2019 - October 17, 2019
Our 2019 conference will focus on regulations and consumer marketing claims, novel technologies geared towards reducing pathogenic bacteria on medical/healthcare textiles, as well as sustainability of odor control chemistries, an important component of our industry now and well into the future. Our final two sessions will tackle the testing front. In our penultimate session, we will explore the current state of odor control efficacy testing and the tremendous task of determining which chemistries work and which do not. To wrap it up, AATCC Committee RA75, Evaluation of Materials and Products for End Use Performance, will present the results of an industry-wide survey designed to capture the state-of-knowledge and the state-of-technology (particularly in testing) in the antibacterial/odor control and textile industries. Ultimately, the goal of this survey is to understand how AATCC can better serve the testing needs of this increasingly complex industry.
