This program looks at the different tests fabrics and products have to undergo before they hit the shelves. Using examples from High Street retailer, New Look and outdoor specialists, Millets and Blacks, the video visits industrial textiles testing laboratories and includes footage and clear explanations of tests for flammability, abrasion and pilling, tear and tensile strength, burst and drape testing, as well as tests for care labeling, eg shrinkage and colour fastness. The program also includes tests for high performance wear, including tests for insulation, breathability, wickability, wind and waterproofness.
