Test Method: SATRA TM214

Crease recovery of folded fabrics

May 2002

SCOPE

This SATRA test method is intended to provide a simple means of measuring the capacity of a fabric to recover from creasing. The test method is particularly applicable to cotton and cotton blend fabrics, but may not be suitable for all types of fabrics.

PRINCIPLE

Conditioned test specimens, cut in the length and width of a fabric, are folded and subjected to a load in order to crease them. Each test specimen is individually placed in a crease recovery angle apparatus and the degree to which the folded fabric opens up or recovers from creasing is measured on an angular scale.
