FTTS-FA-006 Antifungal Textiles

 

Fungi grown and spread on fabrics might not only produce objectionable odors or spots but also cause the inflection of skin or other health problems. Therefore, the application of antifungal treatments to fibers or fabrics is very common in textile industry. Antifungal Textiles suppress the growth of fungus. Their application scope is very extensive, including medical use, household use (rags and bath towels), furnishings, hygiene, cleansing, socks and many others.

With current antifungal technology in Taiwan, the effectiveness of antifungal textile can generally achieve JIS grade 0 (no growth). The test method applied is JIS Z2911. While judging by FTTS-FA-006, no fungal growth on tested fabric can be classified as “excellent”.

Scope

These criteria are applicable to the evaluation and testing of antifungal activity of textile.

Performance specification

.Criteria :
Textile must achieve antifungal activity expressed by area of fungal growth (%) to grade C or above on 4 specified test organisms or on Trichophyton metagrophytes (ATCC 9533), after being washed for 50, 20, 10, or 5 cycles by an approved lab, or no washing required for disposable product so to meet the requirement set for FTTS-FA-006.

.Washing requirement:

Type

Washing cycles

I

Antifungal activity after 50 washing

II

Antifungal activity after 20 washing

III

Antifungal activity after 10 washing

IV

Antifungal activity after 5 washing

V

Antifungal activity without washing(for disposable products)

.Classification of antifungal activity:

Area of fungi growth on specimens (%)

Grade

Classification

No growth, None

A

Excellent

Growth area≦10

B

Good

10< growth area

C

Fair

.Toxicity test:

The applicant must provide animal test reports with dermal irritation test (PII primary irritation index1000 mg/kg, no mortality nor abnormal symptom) for the antifungal finishing reagent used for the treated textile. This can also be provided by test report copy from a third party or guarantee letter from antifungal finishing reagent supplier.
