That means they are stretched over aluminum tubing that is formed in vari- ous geometric shapes. Fisher Textiles performs stretch tests on fabrics that aren't considered stretch materials. "They have no elastic bers in them but we know that customers are stretch- ing the rigid fabric and they still need consistent stretch on those," he says. "In the textile world it is not a stretch ber if it doesn't have a stretch ber in it like Spandex or Lycra, but in the world of the printer, if they can pull on it and make it wider, it is a stretch fabric, and so we end up treating a lot of rigid fabrics the way we treat stretch fabrics in terms of quality control."
