Initially, the firm responded to the specific textile needs textile dye and chemical producers’ laboratories. The firm satisfied those needs by providing select fabrics of consistent quality and the minimum quantities to accommodate those clients.
By 1940, American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC, founded in 1921) had developed their industry’s standard colorfastness test method. They turned to testfabrics, Inc. to provide the solution to their needs for control test fabrics. The firm responded with multifiber adjacent test-fabrics. In 1989, the direct descendants of those first multifiber adjacent fabrics were accepted and recognized as “International reference Standards”, specified in ISO 105/F Series Documents.
