Bigger, Cara Cayenne
Abstract
This study was conducted to detennine if commonly used lamps in retail enviromnents contribute to the fading of merchandi$e within these environments. Fluorescent and halogen lighting were studied as well as the use of sunlight, tested by carbon-arc lighting conditions. The American Association for Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) Grey scale and the Datacolor Spectrometer was used to detem1ine the colorfastness of the test specimens. This data was analyzed and compared to the American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) standards to detennine if the samples met the established standard.
