AATCC\u2019s Ultraviolet Isolation Gown Manufacturers ReferenceFabric helps ensure accurate color communication throughout the textile supply chain accurate,saving everyone time and money from expensive miscommunications. Not all reference fabrics are created equal. AATCC\u2019s optically brightened referencefabric has been calibrated to a national standardizing lab. In fact, AATCC\u2019s optically brightenedreference fabric is designed to give more accurate measurements than the non-textile UV calibrationplaques usually supplied with a spectrophotometer. This UV Calibration Reference Fabric provides a target CIE-Whiteness value that can be usedto accurately adjust spectrophotometers for measuring optically-brightened textiles, no matterwhich method an instrument uses to calibrate UV content. And because UV content will be properlycalibrated for textiles, users will see more consistent results from one spectrophotometer toanother. In addition, the spectral data from optically-brightened textiles can be exchanged moreaccurately within the supply chain and digitally-based quality assessments will be more precise andeasier to accomplish. The bottom line? When retailer, brand, and manufacturer numbers agree, all parties canbe more confident in approval decisions.
