Other Defects in the Quality of Textiles

  • Karl Mahall


Chemical, mechanical and thermal damage, described in the preceeding chapters, and biological damage that will be dealt with in chapter 9, has recurring causes which (as experience shows) can almost certainly be detected by microscopic examination. In practice, other defects occur which can be caused by various chance events. To determine the causes of these defects in finished textiles, considerable experience, a “criminalistic” intuition and thorough examination of the company-internal conditions are necessary. In these cases, the sense of achievement of the textile microscopist is especially significant. Examples will demonstrate some practical problems encountered.
