|Publication Date:||1 July 2012|
|ICS Code (Yarns):||59.080.20|
This test method covers the measurement of yarn number of filament and spun yarns using automated testers. Some of the instruments are stand-alone and others are optional modules for instruments that perform additional tests.
The instruments are capable of measuring yarn numbers up to 4000 dtex (3600 denier).
NOTE 1-For determination of yarn number by use of reel and balance, refer to Test Method D1907.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
