Standard Practices for Visual Inspection and Grading of Fabrics Used for Inflatable Restraints
|Publication Date:||1 December 2012|
|ICS Code (Textiles in general):||59.080.01|
These practices cover procedures for the inspection and grading of coated and uncoated woven flat and one-piece woven (OPW) fabrics, and for the inspection and culling of cut parts made of such fabrics, all of which are used in the manufacture of inflatable restraint cushions.
For ease of reference, the scope, summary of practice, significance and use, apparatus, sampling, procedure, and report sections are listed separately for each inspection practice.
These practices can be used to distinguish those fabric imperfections that may adversely affect inflatable restraint cushion fabrication or performance from those imperfections that will not.
Procedures and apparatus other than those stated in these practices may be used by agreement of the purchaser and supplier with the specific deviations from these practices acknowledged in the report.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
