New certification enables comparability of spacer fabrics
The developed standardization document DIN 60022-1, Spacer textiles -Terms and definition, sample preparation, is the first of the new series of standards and contains specifications for the consistent marking and sample preparation of spacer fabrics. The document was prepared by the working committee NA 106 02 11 AA "Test equipment and test methods for spacer textiles" in the DIN Textile and Textile Machinery Standards Committee under the chairmanship of ITA employee Christoph Peiner.
Other documents on further standardized test methods for air permeability and thickness of spacer fabrics are planned. In addition, a publicly funded follow-up project focusing on further test procedures is planned.
