Fabric Penetration Test is the measurement of a fabric's ability to wet and resist water penetration to water or other liquids. This test is important for evaluating the functional indicators such as water repellency, moisture permeability, and stain resistance of fabrics.Fabric Penetration Tester can help manufacturers, consumers, and regulatory agencies to ensure the quality and safety of fabrics to meet different usage requirements and standards.
There are various methods of Fabric Penetration Test, mainly including hydrostatic pressure method, spray method, rain shower method, core suction method, etc. Different methods are applicable to different types and uses of fabrics, with different testing principles and indicators. For example, the hydrostatic pressure method is by measuring the permeability of the fabric under a certain water pressure, applicable to a variety of fabrics with or without waterproof treatment; spray method is to assess the waterproofness of the fabric by comparing the water damage characteristics of the fabric with standard samples, applicable to the degree of wetting of clothes when simulating hairy rain; rain shower method is by measuring the waterproof performance of the fabric when exposed to air in simulated heavy rain, applicable to any fabric with or without The core absorption method is to evaluate the water absorption rate of the fabric by measuring the height of water climbing through the pores of the fabric fibers, and is applicable to water-conducting fabrics.
The importance of Fabric Penetration Test cannot be ignored, it can provide scientific basis and technical support for the design, development, production, inspection, sales and use of fabrics. Through Fabric Penetration Tester, it can detect whether the fabric has defects or flaws, such as excessive pores, uneven coating, water repellent failure, etc., so that it can be improved or treated in time to improve product quality and market competitiveness. At the same time, through Fabric Penetration Tester, it can verify whether the fabric complies with relevant national or industry standards, such as GB/T 4744-2013 "Testing and Evaluation of Textile Waterproof Properties by Hydrostatic Pressure Method", FZ/T 01004-2008 "Determination of Water Penetration Resistance of Coated Fabrics", GB/T4745-2012 "Textile Fabrics Surface Resistance to Moisture Determination Method of Water Dip Test", etc., so as to ensure product safety and compliance and avoid causing consumer complaints or legal disputes. In addition, through Fabric Penetration Test, the functional characteristics of fabrics, such as water resistance, moisture permeability, stain resistance, etc., can be understood, thus providing consumers with more accurate and comprehensive product information to meet the needs of use in different occasions and environments.
In conclusion, Fabric Penetration Test is an essential technical tool to ensure the quality and safety of fabrics, improve product competitiveness and market reputation, and increase consumer satisfaction and loyalty. Therefore, both manufacturers, consumers and regulatory agencies should pay attention to and participate in Fabric Penetration Test.
