AATCC Seeks to Revise Dry Cleaning Test Methods

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — July 21, 2014 — AATCC, the Association of Textile, Apparel & Materials Professionals, is seeking participation in the revision of AATCC test methods related to dry cleaning.
The current perchloroethylene solvent used in several AATCC test methods has been identified as potentially dangerous and is being phased out of use in some regions. AATCC research committee RA43 plans to update the following test methods to include more environmentally friendly solvents:

  • Test Method 86-2011 Drycleaning: Durability of Applied Designs and Finishes
  • Test Method 132-2013 Colorfastness to Drycleaning
  • Test Method 158-2011 Dimensional Changes on Drycleaning in Perchloroethylene
To participate in these activities, contact Committee Chair Joseph J. Nilsen at +1.215.737.2405 by October 1, 2014.
