Smart textiles terms defined

October 1st, 2019 / By: / Industry News

ASTM International’s smart textiles subcommittee has approved its first standard, a compilation of industry terms. The subcommittee developed terms and definitions that can be used by anyone involved in smart textiles, including manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, regulatory bodies, consumers, laboratories and military personnel. The smart textile terminology standard provides the ability to objectively classify and differentiate some of the new materials and products in the industry. The terms may be used to advertise and describe new products to consumers. They can also be used by regulatory and safety bodies to classify products and their intended performance.
