Standard Test Method for Evaluating the Resistance of the Surface of Wet Blue and Wet White to the Growth of Fungi in an Environmental Chamber
|Publication Date:||1 June 2016|
|ICS Code (Leather and furs):||59.140.30|
This environmental chamber method measures the resistance of the treated Wet Blue and Wet White to the germination of spores and subsequent vegetative growth over a period of four weeks. The test method is useful in estimating the performance of fungicides and should assist in the prediction of storage time of Wet Blue and Wet White before fungal growth begins. The apparatus is designed so it can be easily built or obtained by any interested party and duplicate the natural environment in which Wet Blue and Wet White is inoculated with fungal spores. Spores that germinate on untreated or treated Wet Blue and Wet White can produce fungal growth, resulting in disfigurement or discoloration, or both, of the Wet Blue and Wet White.
