Fundamentals Of Color Fastness To Perspiration, Sea Water & Water

December 1 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Good color fastness in garments is a standard we automatically expect from our clothing, but certain conditions can affect how well they retain their color. When exposed to various natural aqueous materials such as perspiration, sea water and water, fibers and yarns can become agitated, and color fastness can be compromised.

It is crucial that manufacturers take the correct precautions to ensure that the textiles they produce remain color fast, able to withstand exposure to a great many different liquids and substances. Testing using relative standard methods is essential to assess the efficacy of the product, to then confirm that the end products meet acceptable international standards.

This webinar covers the effects that perspiration, sea water and water have on textiles, and how to test their color fastness
