International standardization of the textile industry

The textile industry has been a corporate category for some time and has a large number of branches, this branch of human activity is popular with small and medium-sized companies as well as with entire corporations in interaction at the state level. Nowadays it is difficult to even count the amount of equipment introduced into this industry and the amount of materials available today. The textile industry is developing globally and dictating its own rules for the indirect. Activity categories and the organizations are represented in them in order to avoid chaos and inconsistencies in a well-established system, international documents are introduced as standards that clearly regulate the norms and rules and also enable a qualitative assessment of the possible results. with the correct implementation of this or that device. Today we present to you some of the most important international ISO and EN documents in this branch.

Rubber or plastic coated fabrics Mechanical test methods under biaxial stress conditions Part 2: Determination of the pattern compensation values ​​

EN 171172: 2021

The test methodology is one of the first steps in the conduct of research, implementation and operation of other equipment. In today's textile industry there are many innovations both in relation to the equipment as well as the materials themselves, therefore it is important to test the quality of a given product in order to determine the level of competitiveness.One of the most important international standards regulating test methods in this category of human activity is EN 171 172: 2021.

This document describes methods for determining compensation values ​​for orthotropically coated fabrics (various properties together with ideally long vertical directions, such as warp and weft yarns for woven recy woven covers or along the rows and the like nd trimmings of knitted coated fabrics) to determine cutting patterns.

NOTE The final interpretation and determination of the offset values ​​is the responsibility of the project engineer.

Appendix C describes a method for determining comparable extensibility measures along ideally perpendicular directions of coated fabrics. Designers can use comparable extensibility measures to assess the extensibility of a coated fabric compared to other coated fabrics, can help interpret the compensation test results.In addition, material suppliers can use it to measure the consistency of stretchability along perpendicular directions of a coated fabric from batch to batch.

When we speak of engineering in any particular area of ​​human activity, it should be understood that this category should be viewed as a complex while implying not only a complex of equipment, but also the interaction of the various departments of an organization. In order for the above process to be carried out as coherently and efficiently as possible, you must always have the international standards appropriate to the area of ​​activity of your organization.

Textile floor coverings Determination of the number of tufts and / or loops per unit length and per unit area

ISO 1763: 2020

Despite the fact that when carrying out the manufacture of a particular product, first of all, its effectiveness, as well as financial results, it should not be forgotten that the production conditions as well as certain Warehouses are regulated by certain legal acts. Today there are even international standardization categories that regulate the condition of the premises, as well as the norms and requirements for its parameters according to the activity category. For the textile industry, one of the most recent relevant international standards of this type is ISO 1763: 2020.

This document specifies a method for determining the number of tufts and / or loops per unit of length and area of ​​a textile floor covering. It applies to textile floor coverings whose pile consists of tufts and / or loops.

The rigorous specification of this International Standard will let you know immediately if this is necessary for your field of activity and can help you, or you should turn your attention to finding the most appropriate documents to guide you in your field of activity to get more results.

Wool Determination of the marrow fiber content with the projection microscope

ISO 2647: 2020

The increasing demand for different materials necessitates the need to increase the range and to improve the quality level of existing materials. When it comes to the textile industry, it is to be understood that the number of existing materials is increasing and even apparently ordinary fabrics are being re-adapted in innovative ways.International standards are created for both the equipment and the quality of a certain fabric. In order to create uniform rules for international trade, one of the international standards for wool products is ISO 2647: 2020.

This document specifies a test method for determining the proportion of medullary wool fibers using a projection microscope. The process can be applied to wool and yarn products at all levels, from raw material to yarn.

We recommend that small and medium-sized companies as well as companies that are involved in the manufacture and use of wool products read this document, as this international standard contains the description and regulatory requirements in the international market for all stages of the test procedure until operation and market launch.

Sealed Mechanical Modular Flooring (MMF) Determination of Geometric Properties

EN 17539: 2021

Certain elements that appear in every category of human activity require special attention as small details and categories that are underestimated have a strong influence on the end result can result. Result of the operation of any system. When determining geometric parameters, the implementation of international standards such as EN 17539: 2021 is of great help.

This document specifies test methods for determining the geometric properties of mechanically interlocked flooring tiles in terms of thickness, length, width, squareness, straightness, flatness of width, flatness of length, distances between assembled elements and height differences between assembled elements.

The geometrical characteristics of modular panels with mechanical interlocking are important considerations because if these performance criteria are not met, installed floors will look uncomfortable, which can cause the installed panels to be unevenly oriented, resulting in unsightly joints, uneven surfaces and uneven corners can.

This International Standard regulates both the technology and the mechanical processes relating to geometric properties. Therefore, if the equipment you are using comes in contact with the techniques and equipments mentioned above, this international document will be useful and will help you reach the expected heights in less time than expected.

Textiles Quantitative chemical analysis Part 22: Mixtures of viscose or certain types of cupro or modal or lyocell with flax fibers (method with formic acid and zinc chloride) (ISO 1833 22: 2020)

EN ISO 18332-2: 2021

When to look at the product quality Be aware that both chemical and physical parameters influence the creation of a given product. When international standardization directly affects textiles, as well as those originating from industry, it should be understood that a large number of dyes and chemicals use elements and consequently regulatory and legal interventions are required to solve security problems.One of the international documents specializing in these questions is EN ISO 183322: 2021.

This document specifies a method for determining the percentage by mass

of viscose or certain types of cupro or modal or lyocell using formic acid and zinc chloride. after removal of non-fibrous materials, in textiles made from blends of viscose or certain types of cupro or modal fibers or lyocell with flax fibers.

This document does not apply to blends in which the flax fiber has undergone severe chemical degradation , nor if the viscose, cupro, modal or lyocell fiber is incomplete due to the presence of certain permanent finishes or reactive dyes that cannot be removed become soluble. completely.

Activity in the textile industry with the introduction of chemical elements has a number of regulatory requirements, as well as technological changes, so this international standard does not apply to all types of fabrics and dyes that can be used in this category. Human activity If you have any doubts as to whether this standard can be applied in the category of activities carried out by your organization, you can contact our specialists who will be happy to assist you in choosing an international standard for the development of your particular business.

Consequences of the implementation of ISO standards

The implementation of international standards should not be underestimated, as this international document can exist in a single copy or in connection with supplementary regulations. These documents are very successful in their true worth in terms of the pace and scope of their development. With regard to the textile industry, it should be noted that today there is a greater concentration of production and sales in the countries where it is developed. For this reason, the implementation of international standards will make a significant contribution to differentiating yourself from comparable companies and to reaching a new level of scaling as well as penetrating into more global markets.
