Standard Test Method for Wool Content of Raw Wool - Commercial Scale
|Publication Date:||1 March 2005|
|ICS Code (Natural fibres):||59.060.10|
This test method covers the determination of the wool base content and the clean wool fiber present in a lot of raw wool by commercial-scale scouring of the lot followed by laboratory tests on samples of the scoured wool.
NOTE 1 - The sampling of lots of raw wool in packages is covered in Practice D 1060, and the determination of the wool content of such samples is covered in Test Method D 584. The determination of vegetable matter and other alkali-insoluble impurities in scoured wool is covered in Test Method D 1113. For factors for the conversion of wool base content to its equivalent in terms of scoured wool, top, or noil of various commercially specified compositions, refer to Practice D 2720.
NOTE 2 - The values stated in U.S. Customary Units are to be regarded as the standard because of common commercial practice. The S.I. units in parentheses are provided for information only.
NOTE 3 - Because of trade practice the term "weight" is used in this test method instead of the technically correct term "mass".
