Discoloration due to sunlight. The degree of discoloration is expressed as a number between 1 and 8 on the blue scale, where 1 is the lowest lightfastness and 8 being the highest lightfastness.
The shrinkage after washing or dry cleaning.
Abrasion resistance, the higher the number Martindale, the stronger the fabric.
seam and shear resistance
Decorative use <6000 rpm
Normal usage> 20,000 rpm
Intensive use> 30.000 rpm
Very intensive use> 40.000 rpm
Upholstery fabrics are tested for sensitivity to the "openness" of stitching. In general it can be said that a substance whose tissue wires up to 6 mm from each slide at 180 nm tax, no practical problems. The shear resistance is less, then it is advisable to upholster using double stitching use and locking it off. Sides extra care

Is rotating on the surface of protruding fibers to small balls. The extent to which a fabric tends to pill depends on the raw material and yarn composition. The pilling is represented by a number between 1 and 5. 1 is likely to pill and 5 is no pilling.
