Standard Test Method for Twist in Single Spun Yarns by the Untwist-Retwist Method
|Publication Date:||1 July 2013|
|ICS Code (Yarns):||59.080.20|
This test method2 describes the determination of twist in single spun yarns when only an approximation of the true twist is required.
NOTE 1-For a more accurate method see Test Method D1423.
This test method is applicable to spun single yarns in continuous lengths, and also to spun yarns raveled from fabrics, provided specimens at least 200 mm [8 in.] long can be obtained.
This test method has been found satisfactory for use in determining the approximate twist content in single ring spun yarns of all types and fiber contents, but not in open-end spun yarns.
This specification shows the values in both inch-pound units and SI units. The "inch-pound" units is the technically correct name for the customary units used in the United States. The "SI" units is the technically corrected name for the system of metric units known as the International System of Units. The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
2 This test method is commonly designated by the less precise term "Untwist- Twist Method."
