Phenolic Yellowing


Assessment of the potential to phenolic yellowing of textile materials. Performing this test helps fabric manufacturers understand, predict, and assure garment manufacturers that a garment will not turn yellow while in its packaging in the warehouse or during transportation. Consumables are thoroughly tested, batch by batch, before creating the certificate of conformity.
To complete the phenolic yellowing test, we also recommend as complementary equipment the use of a perspirometer, grey scale, oven and color assessment cabinet.
