The carbon black has been used in military fabrics to comply with the color requirements and infrared radiation lessen- ing criteria. Currently, military industries don’t distinguish between fabrics with carbon black fibers or with carbon black into dyes or prints. The latter initially allows us to comply with the color specifications in the visible and infrared, but fabrics are degraded with use losing that initial capacity. The inclusion of carbon black in the fiber gets that the fab- ric doesn’t degrade with the wear, washed and dried, ensuring the accomplishment of the specifications all the time. The use of infrared imaging will allow us to define a method to discriminate those textiles with carbon black in their fibers from those which are dyed or printed.
