|Publication Date:||10 September 2002|
|ICS Code (Textile fabrics):||59.080.30|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the stiffness of fabrics by measuring the force required to push a specimen into a slot of predetermined width with a metal blade working at a predetermined capacity.
Note 1-For other methods for testing stiffness, refer to Test Methods D 1388, D 4032, and D 5732.
1.2 This test method is applicable to fabrics of any fiber content whose stiffness does not exceed the capacity of the Penetrator Beam apparatus. Specimens can be taken from fabrics, rolls, or end products.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be considered as standard; the values inch-pound units are included for information only.
1.4 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
