At the 2017 Advanced Textiles Conference (ATC), four educational tracks—military, medical, smart fabrics and testing—will give attendees the latest news on the processes, products and profit potential in working with high-tech fabrics and fabrication techniques. The Advanced Textiles Conference, part of IFAI Expo 2017, will be held in New Orleans Sept. 26-29.
This year’s ATC Testing Program, offered in cooperation with NC State College of Textiles and supported by AATCC, gives attendees the opportunity to earn the “Intro to Testing Certificate,” and to advance to the more comprehensive “Textile Testing Essentials Certificate.”
This year at the Expo:
The Intro to Testing Certificate seminar is designed to provide the basics of textile testing: understanding current testing methods and how and where they apply; how to determine the difference between standard and nonstandard testing; identifying performance specifications and how they help to define your product; and how to find resources to answer your textile testing questions. For a list of the requirements necessary to earn this certificate at IFAI Expo/ATC, visit http://ifaiexpo.com/testing.
The Textile Testing Essentials Certificate educational track at ATC is designed by NC State to help participants make better decisions based on textile properties by learning both the methodology and interpretation of standard test procedures. This certificate can be used as credit toward the NC State Textile Technology Certificate Program. For a list of the requirements needed, visit http://ifaiexpo.com/testing.
Visit the Testing Demo Zone on the show floor to interact with experts and see the latest testing equipment first-hand, with live demonstrations, Q&A sessions and videos on current research, testing and product development.
