Standard Test Method for Bursting Strength (Load) and Elongation of Sewn Seams of Knit or Woven Stretch Textile Fabrics
|Publication Date:||29 July 1983|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the bursting strength and elongation of sewn seams in knit or stretch fabrics. The sewn seams may be obtained from previously fabricated articles such as garments or may be prepared from fabric samples.
1.2 This test method requires a straight seam line, and is not applicable if the seam line is curved.
1.3 Preparation of test specimens from fabric samples requires prior specification of sewing details as agreed upon by the purchaser and seller.
NOTE 1--If the breaking force of the fabric alone is also required, test as directed in Method D 3787.
