Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 1 July 2012
Status: inactive
Page Count: 4
ICS Code (Natural fibres): 59.060.10
scope:

1.1 This practice includes, in Table 1, the commercial composition corresponding to different commercial designations for scoured wool, wool top, and wool noil, all of which contain, in addition to wool base, various percentages of moisture, material extractable with alcohol, and mineral matter.

1.2 This practice includes directions for the calculation of the commercial weight of wool corresponding to different commercial designations for several forms of wool, and for converting the commercial weight (mass) calculated on one basis to the commercial weight calculated on a different basis.

1.3 This practice also includes directions for calculating the yield, on various commercial designation bases, obtained by processing raw wool, and for converting the yield calculated on one commercial designation basis to the yield on another commercial designation basis.

Note 1-Because of trade practice the term "weight" is used in this practice instead of the technically correct term "mass".

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.
