LAB I: DYNAMIC SEAM FATIGUE

The lab at STI performs a wide range of tests on fabrics.  AHFA provides the test methods and specifications for fabrics.  The dynamic seam fatigue tester determines the strength of upholstery seam constructions covering a foam cushion.  The stresses at the seam are created by imposing a cyclic, impact, and penetrating load.  Upholstery seams are tested warp sewn to warp, filling sewn to filling, and warp sewn to filling.  A pass is considered if the opening at the seam is 3mm or less. Watch video to see full test procedure!
