List of ASTM Test Standards for Textiles

Different types of test standards are followed to measure the physical, chemical and mechanical properties of textile materials such as fibres, yarns, fabrics, as well as the cloths. The fibres being tested may be natural or man-made fibres. In addition, fabrics can be produced by various fabric production techniques like knitting, weaving, non-weaving. Textile testing and Test standards are used to ensure the right material characteristics required for the ultimate end-uses. The commonly used test standards are:
  • AATCC - American Association of Textile Chemists and Colourists
  • ASTM - American Society for Testing and Materials
  • ANSI - American National Standards Institute
  • ISO - International Organization for Standardization
  • BSI - British Standards Institute
  • BIS - Bureau of Indian Standards
  • BS EN - British Standard European Norm
  • IS - Indian Standards
