AATCC Approves Heal Testers For Test Methods

The American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC), Research Triangle Park, N.C., has approved two testers offered by England-based James H. Heal & Co. Ltd. for inclusion in AATCC test methods.

Heal’s Gyrowash Colourfastness to Washing & Dry Cleaning Tester now is approved for inclusion in AATCC’s Test Method 61, used to evaluate a textile’s colorfastness to laundering. The Crockmaster Colourfastness to Rubbing Tester manual and motorized models 670 and 680 have received approval for inclusion in AATCC Test Method 8: Colorfastness to Crocking, used with dyed, printed or otherwise colored yarn and fabric made from any fiber.
