Characterization tests are essential for assessing the performance of textiles and understanding their properties. Therefore, we performed the following tests for Squitex fiber, fabric, and clothes:
This test measures the force required to stretch or deform a textile sample and assesses its strength, elasticity, and other physical characteristics.
This test evaluates how well a textile’s color resists fading or bleeding when exposed to light, rubbing, and washing.
Abrasion resistance testing
This test examines how the fabric stands up to wear and tear, such as friction, rubbing, and scratching.
This test examines how easily a fabric burns, smolders, or self-extinguishes when exposed to an ignition source (e.g., flame).
Chemical resistance testing
This test evaluates how well a textile resists soaking up different chemicals to determine suitability for specific industrial applications (e.g., protection against oil spills).
Water repellency test
This test examines how easily water beads up on the surface of a textile rather than seeping through it to measure its wicking properties or raincoat performance capabilities.
