08/06/17

Buffalo, New York, June 7, 2017 –  Recent advances in technology have brought together the apparel, technology, and textile industries to develop new capabilities in fabrics with the potential to change how everyday consumers interact with their clothes and other textile products.  Traditional consumer products, electronics, textiles, and apparel, each have well-known standards for performance and testing. However, as electronic capabilities are integrated into textiles and apparel, there are questions as to whether existing standards apply to new smart fabrics. 

 

To keep pace with this fast growing segment and to address the challenges related to standards for wearable technology and electronic textiles, ASTM International established a wearable/smart textile subcommittee, ASTM D13.50, Smart Textiles, and Bureau Veritas’ Srini Venkataraman has been selected to be the Subcommittee Chairman.

 

Our participation in key industry organizations gives Bureau Veritas the critical advantage in serving our clients. Srini brings considerable knowledge and experience to this group and we’re excited about the contribution he will bring to shaping the standards for this growing new market,” noted Tim Mattulke, Vice President of Technical Services and Consultancy, America.

 

Srini Venkataraman has been with Bureau Veritas for 20 years.  He started as a fiber analyst in their Buffalo, NY facility, and then moved to Brocton, MA, to manage the newly acquired Merchandise Testing Laboratories.  In 2012, Srini took on the role of a Program Manager and currently works as their Global Technical Specialist in the area of Textiles.  Prior to joining BV, Srini worked in textile spinning and dyeing mills.  He holds a Masters’ degree in Textile Science from Virginia Polytechnic and State University.
