AATCC 61 – Accelerated Home Laundering

 Durability testing is important for products and materials like textiles that will be exposed to different environmental conditions like water and heat.

AATCC 61 is a durability test that performs accelerated laundering for textiles that are expected to undergo frequent laundering.

This method is often requested as a durability test performed with the antimicrobial test AATCC TM 100.

AATCC TM 100 is an antibacterial test for textiles, and when combined with AATCC 61, these methods can compare how an antimicrobial will perform before and after accelerated aging.

Performance testing during product development and as a finished product are key to a successful high performing material.

Additionally, simultaneously performing accelerated laundering and antimicrobial testing can help reduce costs and save time associated with bringing new or revised products to the market.
