Standard Test Method for Abrasion Resistance of Textile Fabrics (Flexing and Abrasion Method)
|Publication Date:||10 April 1999|
|ICS Code (Textile fabrics):||59.080.30|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the abrasion resistance of woven or nonwoven textile fabrics using the flexing and abrasion tester.
1.2 This test method applies to most woven and nonwoven fabrics providing they do not stretch excessively. It is not applicable to floor coverings.
1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as the standard. Within the text, the inch-pound units are shown in parentheses. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with this test method.
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.
NOTE 1--For other test methods for abrasion resistance of textiles refer to Test Methods D 3884, D 3886, D 4157, D 4158, D 4966, and AATCC 93.
