Founded as the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists, AATCC has served textile professionals since 1921. Today, the scope of AATCC reaches far beyond chemists and colorists. Today, AATCC, the Association of Textile, Apparel and Materials Professionals, provides test method development, quality control materials, education, and professional networking for a global audience.
AATCC is internationally recognized for its standard methods of testing fibers and fabrics to measure and evaluate such performance characteristics as colorfastness, appearance, soil release, dimensional change, and water resistance. New and updated test methods are published annually in the AATCC Technical Manual.
AATCC continues to evolve to meet the needs of those in the ever-changing textile and materials industries. Visit the AATCC website, the free AATCC News newsletter, and the Association’s bi-monthly magazine, AATCC Review.
