AATCC 30 Test II
Agar Plate, Chaetomium globosum
Antifungal Activity, Assessment on Textile Materials: Mildew and Rot Resistance of Textile Materials
This test evaluates rot resistance of cellulose-containing textile materials that will not come in contact with soil.
Samples are placed onto mineral salts agar and inoculated with test organism Chaetomium globosum.
After incubation, samples are evaluated for strength loss and/or visual assessment evaluated for microscopic and macroscopic growth and a zone of inhibition.
MicroStar Lab does not perform breaking strength testing. Fabrics requiring breakage strength testing are sent to an outside laboratory.
