Fiber Content Identification and Related Issues


1 Why should we label fiber content?
The labeling of fiber content is the most direct way for companies to communicate raw materials to consumers, and it is also an undertaking and explicit guarantee that companies make to consumers. For consumers, it is the basis for understanding the materials and properties of the garments that are purchased. Consumers can choose the garments that are suitable for them according to the fiber content indicated in the instructions for use.
2 How should the fiber name be marked?
GB 5296.4 stipulates that each product should be attached with a fiber content endurance label, indicating the name and content of each component fiber contained in the product. The fiber content can also be labeled on the same label as the rest of the instructions for use. When the product has different types of fiber content labels, the consistency of its fiber content should be maintained. If the durability label used affects the use of the product or is not suitable for attaching a durable label, such as fabric, wool, sewing thread, socks, etc., other types of labels such as tag may be used.
3 sets of products or special packaging products how to label fiber content?
There are several situations as follows:
1. Products that are sold in whole or whole bags and are not suitable for durable labels. When the fiber content of each product is the same, a fiber content label can be provided in units of sales units;
2. When the packaged product is sold, if the fiber content information on the textile product (except above) cannot be clearly seen, the fiber content of the product must be indicated on the package or product specification;
(3) Packages consisting of two or more unit products with different fiber contents; or a package containing the same fiber content but sold as a single product for each unit, each product should have its own separate fiber Content label
4. When the same fiber content of the complete set of products, and complete delivery to the final consumer, the fiber content information can only be marked on a unit in the product;
5. If the product is not for sale to the final consumer, the content of the fiber content label is replaced by a commercial document.
4 Can the fiber content be in English?
The words on the fiber content label should be clear and eye-catching. The state-regulated Chinese characters should be used, and Chinese characters should be used as well as text expressions in other languages.
5 What are the requirements for fiber content durability labels?
The content of the fiber content durability label should not be irritating to the human body and should be attached to the product in a suitable location and ensure that the information on the label is not covered or hidden.
6 What parts (sites) of the product need to be labeled with fiber content?
Each product's fabric, lining, and filler should be clearly and correctly marked with the percentage of fiber content. Only in the decorative part of the product or the part that does not constitute the body of the product, such as: lace, ruffles, piping, welts, belts, ribbons, collars, cuffs, hem, elastic mouth, lining, padding , Pockets, Liners, Trademarks, Partial Embroidery, Appliques, etc. If the area of ​​these individual parts or the total area of ​​multiple parts of the same fabric does not exceed 15% of the surface area of ​​the product, the fibre content of this part may not be marked.
7 Can fiber content label the brand name of the product?
Can't. Because the brand name is not the normative fiber name specified by the national standard, such as: "Lycra", "Tiansi", etc. Here, "Lycra" should be marked with elastic fiber, "Ten silk" should be labeled with Lyocell fiber.
8 Can fiber content label functional fiber name?
Currently it is not possible. Some parts of some products contain certain characteristic fibers, such as: conductive fibers. The requirements for these characteristic fibers are not yet clearly defined. However, conventional component analysis methods cannot analyze the presence of these functions and are difficult to determine.
9 Can the fiber content be marked as the place of origin?
Can be labeled in specific situations. The raw materials of some products are famous for their origin, such as merino wool, Angora rabbit hair, etc. Unless there is a certificate of origin, this can only be marked with wool, rabbit hair, because there is no testing standard to certify wool, The origin of rabbit hair.
10 fiber content can be labeled organic cotton?
