The U.S. is the world’s most reliable producer of high quality cotton.
Cotton Incorporated helps maintain this leadership position through ongoing research and measurement studies. These include:
- Accurate measurements of cotton fiber, yarn and fabric properties.
- High Volume Instrument testing for fiber length, strength, length uniformity, micronaire, color and trash content.
- Fiber tests for neps, fineness, maturity, and non-lint content.
- Management of cotton property databases.
Every bale of cotton in the United States is classified by The USDA classing offices.
Using HVI data combined with advanced software allows users to improve spinning processes and end-product quality. Find out how you can better manage your cotton mill or merchant business with Cotton Incorporated’s Engineered Fiber Selection® System Software (EFS®).
