SiroFAST is afabric quality assurance system

 

SiroFAST has been developed in Australia by CSIRO to meet industry's need for a reliable method of predicting fabric performance

Fabric manufacturers, suppliers, finishers and garment manufacturers needed a simple reliable and cost effective method of predicting fabric performance in garments.
What CSIRO did
SiroFAST - Fabric Assurance by Simple Testing, is a quality assurance system developed in Australia by CSIRO to meet industry's need for a simple reliable method of predicting fabric performance.


It is currently being used by fabric and garment manufacturers in many parts of the world in a wide variety of applications and has fast become the industry benchmark standard.
SiroFAST is a system of objective measurements for assessing the appearance, handle and performance properties of fabrics, using an integrated set of instruments and test methods.


SiroFAST measures the mechanical, dimensional and pressing performance properties of fabric to predict performance in garment manufacture and the appearance of the garment in wear.


A simple series of tests can predict how a fabric will perform when made-up into a garment - providing valuable information for fabric manufacturers, suppliers, finishers and garment manufacturers.


The tests are simple and the equipment is easy to use with results able to be obtained quickly and provided in a graphic form which facilitates rapid interpretation and application.


Despite the simple appearance of SiroFAST, it is based on considerable research into the relationships between measured fabric properties and fabric performance.
The benefits of SiroFAST


The SiroFAST system is simple to use, robust and gives a reliable prediction of performance.


As the time required for testing is short, SiroFAST is highly suitable for use by fabric and garment manufacturers.
SiroFAST™can tell you how a fabric will perform in terms of compression, extension, bending, dimensional stability and pressing performance.
Each test results in what is known as a 'Fabric Fingerprint' - essentially a plotted chart - and the results can be used for:


fabric specifications
developing new fabrics
comparing fabric finishing routes
assessing the stability of finished fabrics
predicting tailoring performance and final garment appearance.


Abnormal 'Fabric Fingerprints' pinpoint potential problem areas. Early identification of problem fabrics allows remedial action to be taken before the cost of rejects becomes an issue. Better still, it enables the best finishing route to be selected from the outset, to produce the optimal tailoring performance.


During its introduction into Europe and the USA SiroFAST has proved to be a valuable tool in many aspects of fabric and garment manufacture including quality control, problem solving and product development.


The greatest value of the system may prove to be in encouraging communication between fabric and garment manufacturers by allowing the exchange of objective information on performance of fabrics and removing some of the subjectively from discussions.

AATC Accelerotor

 

To rapidly determine wet and dry abrasion resistance of flexible materials including textiles, paper, leather and plastics to standards AATCC 93, M&S P26. Samples are rapidly tumbled within a cylindrical test chamber lined with an appropriate abrasion material. The tumbling action is provided by a propeller shaped rotor for a pre-determined time at a pre-determined speed. Can be specified with rotors and liners for ASTM/AATCC tests or for Marks + Spencer Tests (Accredited Suppliers only).


The VeriVide Accelerotor Viewer provides standardized viewing conditions for the grading of samples to various standards. Designed for the evaluation of samples that have been through the suggested AATCC Accelerotor tests, the Viewer allows you to grade abrasion and scuffing under controlled, lighting conditions, by providing a constant, flicker free, and even illumination via transmitted light.

The Accelerotor Viewer is supplied with interchangeable masks to increase it's flexibility, conforming to a wide range of standards and applications. Masks can also be supplied in specific sizes and shapes for individual customers needs, to a maximum size of 260mm x 135mm.

Seam Slippage 

 

The seam slippage tester can be used to test for the likelihood of slippage in the stitched seam of a woven fabric. Thus testing the fabric structure, the type of seam and the conditions of stitching. The distance between the jaws on this seam slippage tester are fully adjustable for any distance between 0 - 75mm apart. Markings on the machine 25, 50 and of course 75mm.

 

The scale reads 0 -25 kilos in 100gm divisions. Therefore making it suitable for 8kg., 12kg. and 18kg loads. Thus making the instrument suitable for dress wear through to upholstery fabrics !

Kawabata System

The Kawabata Evaluation System (KES) is used to make objective measurements of hand properties. The KES instruments measure mechanical properties that correspond to the fundamental deformation of fabrics in hand manipulation. Five different tests can be performed using KES and the main mechanical characteristics produced, are described below.

The Kawabata system of instruments, features fabric handling, measures properties of textile fabrics and predicts the aesthetic qualities perceived by human touch. The Kawabata Evaluation System (KES) includes five ( no. 5 not available) highly sensitive instruments that measure fabric bending, shearing, tensile and compressive stiffness, as well as the smoothness and frictional properties of a fabric surface. This evaluation can include measurement of the transient heat transfer properties associated with the sensation of coolness generated when fabrics contact the skin during wear. KES provides a unique capability, not only to predict human response, but also to provide an understanding of how the variables of fiber, yarn, fabric construction and finish contribute to the perception of softness. A standard specimen size of 20 x 20 cm is used in three replications. All measurements are directional, except for compression, and are made in both the lengthwise direction, and in the crosswise direction of the sample. Appropriate instrument settings are used for the material being tested.
