Gas Chromatography test method for the deodorant testing of textile products
ISO 17299-3 specifies a gas chromatography testing method to determine the deodorant property of textile products.
Getting rid of the unpleasant and peculiar odor from clothes is a common and perhaps challenging problem for many individuals. Primarily, bacteria, grime, sweat, and humid conditions give rise to this unpleasant odor. The fact here to understand is that the fabric of cloth plays a big role in masking or releasing bad odors.
With continuous research and technological advancements, textile products are being developed that have the ability to reduce the unpleasant odors deposited on clothes either by sweat or other environmental factors. And to evaluate the deodorant properties of such clothes, test methods have been developed by ISO (International Organization for Standardization).
ISO 17299 test method is applicable for following textile products – woven fabric, knit, nonwoven, yarns, braiding products, tapes, and slings.
ISO 17299 test has two different preparation methods i.e. method A and method B.
Method A – An odor chemical is added to a container with the specimen, avoiding direct contact with the specimen. Here each chemical is tested individually.
Method B – An odor chemical is injected directly onto the specimen in a container. Here a mixture of chemicals (acetic acid and sodium chloride, NaCl) is tested together.
At Microbe Investigations, we use method A for the odor testing of textile products –
At Microbe Investigations, we perform the tests for odor evaluation of textiles developed to neutralize the unpleasant odors caused by sweat, microbes and other impurities. Our lab is well equipped with modern equipment and instruments to ensure the accuracy of results.
We are continuously helping our customers to develop and launch high quality products. Contact us if you are looking for more information on odor testing test method.
ISO 17299 is a standard test method developed for the deodorant testing of all textile clothes. This method is applicable to the odor component chemicals, such as indole, isovaleric acid, nonenal, and a mixture of acetic acid and sodium chloride (NaCl).
ISO 17299 test method applies to the deodorant testing of all textile clothes such as woven fabric, knit, nonwoven, yarns, braiding products, tapes, and slings.
The turnaround time for ISO 17299-3A test is 2-3 weeks.
