Abstract: Fabric testing plays a crucial role in gauging product quality, assuring regulatory compliance and assessing the performance of textile materials. It provides information about the physical or structural properties and the performance properties of the fabrics. Today more and more countries and markets have a stake in the treatment and testing of fabric. As consumers become more aware and more demanding of products, the number of tests required for textile fabrics has grown. As a result the testing of fabrics is increasingly varied, in constant flux and full of the unprecedented challenges of globalization. This introductory chapter describes the importance, scope, current status and future trends in fabric testing.
