  Working Principles
Click to ViewSIROFAST (Fabric Assurance by Simple Testing) is a set of instruments and test methods for measuring mechanical and dimensional properties of wool fabrics. These measurements allow the prediction of fabric performance in garment manufacture and the appearance of the garment during wear. A simple method of interpreting the data to predict fabric performance is an integral part of the system. SiroFAST consists of three instruments and a test method: SiroFAST-1 is x compression meter that measures fabric thickness. SiroFAST-2 is a bending meter that measures the fabric bending length. SiroFAST-3 is an extension meter that measures fabric extensibility. SiroFAST-4 is a test procedure for measuring dimensional properties of fabric
