Fastness is the resistance of a textile material to particular concoction organizations. Poor shading fastness in material items is a real wellspring of client protest. The quickness of a shading can fluctuate with the kind of color, the specific shade utilized, the profundity of shade and how well the coloring procedure has been done. Colors can likewise carry on distinctively when in contact with distinctive operators, for occurrence colors which may be quick to dry-cleaning may not be quick to washing in water. It is hence essential to test any colored or printed item for the quickness of the hues that have been utilized as a part of its improvement. 

There are various offices that the hued thing may experience amid its lifetime which can bring about the shading either to blur or to drain onto a neighboring uncoloured or light shaded thing. These components change with the end use for which the item is proposed. For example floor coverings and upholstery are cleaned in an alternate manner from bed material and attire and consequently come into contact with distinctive materials. The organizations that influence shaded materials incorporate light, washing, dry-cleaning, water, sweat and pressing. There are an expansive number of shading Fastness tests in presence which manage these organizations and a full rundown will be found in the English Standard. A further gathering of tests is associated with courses of action in assembling that the hued material may experience in the wake of coloring however before fulfillment of the fabric, procedures, for example, decatising or processing. Regardless of the way that the rundown of shading quickness tests is long, the greater part of them are led along comparative lines so that the principle contrasts among the tests are in the specialists to which the material is uncovered.

Color Fastness:
Color fastness is a term utilized as a part of the dyeing of textile materials, importance resistance of the material's color to blurring or running. The term is generally utilized as a part of the setting of garments. The primary known utilization of the word colorfast was in 1916. by and large, dress ought to be tried for colourfastness before utilizing bleach or other cleaning products.Light fastness, wash fastness, and rub fastness are the principle ones that are institutionalized.

The light fastness of textile dye is sorted from one to eight and the wash fastness from one to five. The higher the number the better fastness is acquired.

Standards of Color Fastness: 
1. AATCC (American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists) specialized manual:
Describes 66 quantities of diverse color fastness tests.

2. SDC (Society of Dyers and Colorists):
In 1927, SDC (Europe) made fastness test panel.

3. ISO(International Organization for Standardization):
In 1947, ISO made color sub board of trustees. ISO additionally reviews the fastness:

For light fastness: 1~8

For different fastness: 1~5

Components Affecting the Color Fastness Properties: 
The concoction way of the fiber. Case in point, cellulosic fibers dyed with receptive or vat dyes will indicate great fastness properties. Protein fibers dyed with acid severe and receptive dyes will attain to great fastness properties et cetera. That is to say similarity of dye with the fiber is essential.
The sub-atomic structure (e.g.) of a dye atom: If the dye particle is bigger in size, it will be firmly captured inside the between polymer chain space of a fiber. Therefore the fastness will be better.
The way in which the dye is clung to the fiber or the physical structure present.
The measure of dye present in the fiber i.e. profundity of shade. A profound shade will be less quick than a pale or light shade.
The vicinity of different chemicals in the material.
The genuine conditions winning during presentation.
