ASTM Smart textiles

ASTM International-Smart textiles terminology defined in new standard

The smart textiles subcommittee of the American society for testing and materials ASTM International, West Conshohocken, PA/USA, has approved its first standard, a compilation of industry terms.

This new smart textile terminology standard provides the ability to objectively classify and differentiate some of these new materials and products. The subcommittee developed terms and definitions that can be used by anyone involved in smart textiles, including manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, regulatory bodies, consumers, laboratories, and military personnel. The standard will also help consumers understand exactly what it is they are buying.
The new standard helps define everything from “smart textiles” to “wearable electronics”. 
The subcommittee plans to refine these terms and add more terms and definitions as the market continues to evolve, mature, and expand.
