A proposed ASTM International standard test
method is going to cover areas related to ribbon width, fineness, maturity, and
micronaire of cotton fibres. The standard is developed by ASTM international
textiles committee.

This test method is going to focus on
cotton fibres taken from a chemically untreated and loose sample that is taken
before ginning, harvest, during mill processing, and separated from raw yarn.
According to Stuart Gordon, Team Leader, CSIRO Agriculture and Food, its is
important to know the cross-sectional properties of cotton fibres that run
across the cotton supply chain from breeding, textile production, an fabric
appearance. He also said that this standard is going to offer a quick
assessment of cotton fibre sample’s properties. The international cotton
industry has always been looking for such a standard.

He also said that research laboratories,
regulatory bodies, and cotton merchants and spinners are going to benefit from
this standard test method. This standard also has
application in the forensic examination of textiles to get assured of the
quality and for identification purposes as it can be applied to fires separated
from yarn in a textile.

Goal #12 of the United Nations Sustainable
Development directly relates with this effort on responsible consumption and
production.
