Abstract

Current methods of identification for di- and tri-acetate fibres based on solvent testing do not always give a clear and unambiguous result. Alternative solvents are presented, which provide an improved level of performance. Melting point determination is also shown to be applicable to the identification of the two types of acetate fibre.
