Subject content Testing methodology for all type fibers, yarns, textile fabrics and clothes damages coming during production processes and care processes. Systematization of damage types according reasons and features. Tendency is on type damage labaratory identification applying different methods: damage detection by microscopy, microscopy with specific reagents, determination of degree of polymerisation, “factor” of damage, identification of mechanical damage, changes of strength, solubility and other physical and chemical charactheristics.
Aim of course Mastering with methodology and technics for textile damage testing. Qualified for labaratory analyses.
