Dimensional stability is a very important assessment index of fabric performance in the world. The dimensional stability of a fabric refers to the nature of the material and its potential stress or heat shrinkage during processing, which results in dimensional changes under use or processing conditions. It is mainly divided into dry cleaning dimensional change rate and washed dimensional change rate. The dimensional stability of the fabric is directly related to the accuracy of the size of the piece, the stability of the size of the clothing, as well as the shape and wearing effect of the clothing.
The dimensional stability tests provided by Alfa Chemistry include, but are not limited to:
Dimensional stability of washing
Dimensional stability of cold water immersion
Each additional washing cycle
Dimensional stability of ironing
Appearance after washing
Appearance after ironing
Dimensional stability of dry cleaning
Relaxation shrinkage / felting shrinkage
Appearance retention after commercial dry cleaning
Fall into the water and deform
Fabric and clothing twist / skew
Thermal shrinkage (boiling water shrinkage)
Steam dimensional stability
Appearance inspection of ready-made clothing
Each additional dry cleaning cycle
Testing standards include, but are not limited to:
ISO 3759:2011: Textiles - Preparation, marking and measuring of fabric specimens and garments in tests for determination of dimensional change
ISO 6330:2012: Textiles - Domestic washing and drying procedures for textile testing
GB/T 8628: 2013: Textiles - Preparation, marking and measuring of fabric specimens and garments in tests for determination of dimensional change
GB/T 8629: 2007: Textiles - Domestic washing and drying procedures for textile testing
