Attendees will learn how to properly perform and interpret test results for approximately 20 colorfastness and physical properties test methods and evaluation procedures. Colorfastness tests to be addressed include crocking, light, washing, and perspiration. Tests for evaluating physical properties include dimensional change, skewness, soil release, water repellency and resistance, and appearance retention. AATCC staff will discuss and demonstrate these procedures and registrants will be involved in hands-on participation.

Sessions will be conducted on color basics and measurement. Participants will be shown how to use the AATCC Gray Scales for Staining and Color Change, and the AATCC Chromatic Transference Scale.
