Utilizing our professional laboratory, these are the tests we perform.
ASTM D1518 Standard Test Method for Thermal Resistance of Batting Systems Using a Hot Plate This test method measures the heat transfer from a warm, dry, constant-temperature, horizontal flat-plate up through a layer of the test material to a cool atmosphere and calculates the resistance of the material. The measurements are made under still air conditions (Option #1) or with a horizontal air flow over the specimen (Option #2).
ASTMD1777/ASTMD5736:1995(2001) Since the thickness of most textile materials varies considerably depending on the pressure applied to the specimen, it is essential to specify the pressure data to ensure testing consistency. Pressure loaded is base on “psi” refers to pounds per square inch. The specimen is applied with pressure load of 0.01 psi in testing
ASTME96-BW/2010 Water Vapor Transmission for textiles fabrics under inverted cup method (MVP test) This method is designed to test the ability of fabric to allow moisture vapor to be transmitted through a textile material with what we say “breathability.” Specimen is mounted on the mouth of dish and water vapor permeability is determined by the amount of water lost after a period of 24 hours.
ASTM-TS06 (Wicking Test); ASTM-TS05 (Drying speed/time of textile) These two standards should be performed simultaneously to simulate the process of perspiration. Specimen is held in vertical position and partially immersed in distilled water for testing.
Compressibility and resilience of padding To make use of thickness variation to test the compressibility & rebound ability (resilience) after pressure loading & relaxation from pressure removal in certain period. 5 specimens of 20cm x20cm each are cut and piled together for tested sample.
Fiber migration test by static method To assess the ability of fabrics to withstand fiber percolation from insulation sample through static charge. Pillow sample (11″x 22″) of fabric/fiberfill/fabric is required to put onto a wooden cylinder & undergo total 150 revolutions against a Teflon plate. After each 50 revolutions, it is required to count number of fibers with percolation and this step is repeated until 150 revolutions.
