Textile Testing | Objects of Textile Testing | Different Types of Textile Testing | Fiber Test/Yarn Test/Fabric Test

The process to determine the properties of different kinds of substance is called testing. Testing is an important segment of the textile industry. We can easily detect the faults of machinery and materials during test of textiles. Besides, textile testing needs to assure compliance with changing governmental safety regulations and to meet increasing consumer demand for high-quality textiles and apparel.
