ABOUT AATCC The American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) was founded by Dr. Louis Olney of the Lowell Textile School in 1921. AATCC is the world's leading not-for-profit professional association for the textile design, materials, processing, and testing industries. Their members are employees of textile, apparel, and home goods manufacturers; dye and chemical manufacturers; testing laboratories; consumer and retail organizations; state and federal government agencies; and colleges and universities. AATCC has thousands of individual and corporate members in more than 60 countries worldwide.
The Association is internationally recognized for its standard methods of testing dyed and chemically treated fibers and fabrics to measure and evaluate such performance characteristics as colorfastness to light and washing, smoothness appearance, soil release, shrinkage, water resistance, and the many other conditions to which textiles may be subjected. New and updated test methods are published annually in the AATCC Technical Manual. The many aspects of textile wet processing, design, and testing are also covered in handbooks, textbooks, and proceedings of AATCC's workshops, symposia, International Conference & Exhibition (IC&E), monthly magazine, AATCC Review, and monthly electronic newsletter, AATCC News.
AATCC test method training is currently available in the United States, as well as in several key textile and marketing areas of China, India, Pakistan, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan (China), Thailand and Turkey, and the Association is working to provide training in other countries.
