Technical test is more authentic than non-technical test due to its accuracy. There is limitation in burning test for e.g some of the fabrics are blends, and the blend of fibers may make the burn test rather unreliable test for fiber content. Moreover, some fabrics have chemical finishes and sizing applied to them that will change the way they burn, making the burn test further unreliable 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
