Standard Test Methods for Quantitative Analysis of Textiles
|Publication Date:||1 August 2008|
|ICS Code (Textiles in general):||59.080.01|
These test methods cover procedures for the determination of the fiber blend composition of mixtures of the fibers listed in 1.2. Procedures for quantitative estimation of the amount of moisture and certain nonfibrous materials in textiles are also described, for use in the analysis of mixtures, but these are not the primary methods for the determination of moisture content for commercial weights.
These test methods cover procedures for the following fiber types:
Animal hairs (other than wool)
Rayon, viscose or cuprammonium
Nylon 6, Nylon 6-6, others
These test methods include the following sections and tables:
The analytical procedures described in the test methods are applicable to the fibers listed in 1.2. The test methods are not satisfactory for the separation of mixtures containing fibers that fall within the same generic class but differ somewhat, either physically or chemically, from each other. These test methods are not satisfactory for the determination of bicomponent fibers.
NOTE 1 - For other methods of analysis covering specific determinations, refer to: Test Methods D 461, Test Method D 584, Methods D 885, Test Method D 1113, Test Method D 1334, and Test Method D 2130. Methods for moisture are covered in Methods D 885, Test Method D 1576, Test Method D 2462, Test Method D 2495 and Test Methods D 2654. For the determination of commercial weight, refer to Test Method D 2494.
