Understanding Fiber Fragmentation and the Solutions Available to Business

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has published a Consumer Compact article looking at the issue of fiber fragmentation and the solutions available businesses that want to manufacture fiberfast clothing and textiles

Microplastics are a major problem in our oceans. The WWF estimate 90% of seabirds now have plastic in their stomachs. A major source of this pollution is fiber fragmentation caused during the laundering of garments and materials.

SGS’s Consumer Compact article looks at the problem from the perspective of the manufacturer or supplier and considers the available options when developing fiberfast products. It looks at testing solutions – both small-scale and full-scale – and the regulatory changes that may impact the industry.
