International Standardization of the DRAPETEST Method as ISO 21765

September 29 2021

Textechno has reported that the test method implemented in the automatic drapability tester DRAPETEST is now standardized on international level as ISO 21765.

This new standard “Textiles – Determination of fabric deformability by forced mechanical distension” results from a continuous development of the DIN SPEC 8100. The focus of this standard is on the formation of defects during the draping and forming process of standard- and non-crimp fabrics.

The test method of the new ISO 21765 allows for the first time an exchange of comparable and reproducible quality data for the drapability between customers and suppliers of standard- and non-crimp fabrics worldwide.
‘A lot of research is dedicated to new production technologies of composites, non-crimp fabrics, and classical fabrics for thermosets which have a significant market share in the production of all composite materials,’ said composite consultant Dr Michael Effing, which has been advising Textechno.
