What is "Condition (v)" - Definition & Explanation

a) To allow textile materials (raw materials, fibres, slivers, yarns and fabrics) to come to hygroscopic equilibrium with the surrounding atmosphere, or with the standard atmosphere for testing (q.v.)

b) to add relatively small quantities of water to textile materials (raw materials, fibres, slivers, yarns and fabrics).

NOTE:

The object of conditioning is to bring textiles to an agreed moisture content for sale, or to facilitate later processing. Among the methods used for applying water are:

1. mechanical means during gilling (q.v.) or winding;

2. the use of conditioning machines; and

3. storing in an atmosphere of very high relative humidity.
