A principle aim of BISFA is to establish standard methods of testing and rules for the classification and nomenclature for man-made fibres. These should be the basis for fair trading practices. The methods of manufacture used allow a variety of new materials to be produced. It is therefore necessary to establish standardized principles and analytical tools to ensure harmonious technical and commercial relationships both nationally and internationally.

As new fibre products appear, BISFA endeavours to establish new rules and methodologies. The details of the test methods used are given in BISFA testing methods booklets. The testing methods booklets are available as a printed version or in Adobe Acrobat PDF-file. Orders of a printed or PDF version are welcome. The content of each booklet can be downloaded without cost. A 50 per cent discount on prices will be granted to BISFA members.

 

TERMINOLOGY OF FIBRES

Recognising the need to avoid confusion of technical terms, BISFA published its first Terminology of Man-Made Fibres in 1968. This contained terms and definitions describing the different methods by which man-made fibres are manufactured, either as primary materials or as intermediate products. To preclude language difficulties and misunderstanding the main technical terms used were translated into five languages.

The 2009 version of the Terminology of Man-Made Fibre booklet is available.
