Standard Test Method for Fiber Cohesion in Sliver and Top (Static Tests)
|Publication Date:||10 May 1999|
|ICS Code (Natural fibres):||59.060.10|
This test method describes the measurement of fiber cohesion as the force required to cause initial drafting in a bundle of fibers in sliver and top. The observed cohesive force required to separate the fibers is converted to cohesive tenacity based on the linear density of the specimen.
NOTE 1-For determination of fiber cohesion in dynamic tests, refer to Test Method D4120.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. Inch-pound units appear in parentheses for information only.
