Purpose and Scope
This test method is designed to determine the degree of color transfer from the surface of textile floor coverings to other surfaces by rubbing. The intent is to reproduce as near as possible true-to-life situations in all constructions whether dyed, printed or otherwise colored.
Test procedures employing white test cloths, both dry and wet with water, are given.
As the use surface of a textile floor covering may be exposed to various conditions in true-to-life situations, such as soil, stains, cleaning, shampooing and application of chemical treatments such as antisoils, antistats, antimicrobials, etc., the test may be made before, after or before and after such situations.
