Types of Textile Testing Methods

What is Textile Testing?

Textile testing refers to various examinations of properties of textile substances or materials ie. raw materials, yarn, fabric or garments. By testing various properties of materials, we can assess the quality and eliminate any faults of the final product. Certain parameters are to be met to make the products acceptable to its customers. If a product fails to meet the previously set parameters, the buyer may not accept the product. For the sake of quality, textile testing is a must in the garments business. Any kind of faults can be identified through highly intensive testing processes.

Types of Textile Testing Methods

Testing plays an important role during the shipment of textile products. There are separate types of testing that can be done on different stages of textile products.

  1. Raw Materials Testing
  2. Yarn Testing
  3. Fabric Testing
  4. Garment Testing
