AATCC 30 Test I
Soil Burial Test
Antifungal Activity, Assessment on Textile Materials: Mildew and Rot Resistance of Textile Materials
This test evaluates the ability of fabrics to withstand exposure to microorganisms that could adversely affect the strength and performance of the material. It is intended for textile products that will come in direct contact with soil.
Test pieces are buried in a pan of garden soil blended with manure and coarse sand for 2 weeks-16 weeks and then evaluated for breaking strength.
Upon test completion, the test specimens will be washed and dried. MicroStar Lab does not perform breaking strength testing, therefore that testing is outsourced.
