Laboratory analysis of textiles by SEM

Industrialists in the textile sector, you wish to analyse your products by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)

What is SEM?

First of all, SEM (scanning electron microscopy) is an essential electron microscopy technique for analysing the appearance of a material. Indeed, the material studied is scanned by a fine beam of electrons without destroying it, thus allowing qualitative images of the surface to be obtained.

Why analyse your textiles by SEM?

With the SEM, it is possible to study the surfaces of your textiles for a detailed analysis.

Indeed, the examination of the aspect of a material by SEM allows, first of all, to check and adapt your manufacturing processes. The SEM, thanks to the image quality obtained at the end of the analysis, makes it possible to examine the surface of your textiles in detail.

The SEM analysis of your textiles also allows you to count the relative number of fibres of each type in a prepared test sample.

The number of fibres leads to the calculation of the percentage in the test sample mixture by number of fibres and respective density. Subsequently, the calculation of the percentage by mass of the fibre in the laboratory sample is carried out according to its structure (loose fibres, yarns, woven fabrics, knitted fabrics, etc.).
