Colorfastness to Perspiration
|Publication Date:||1 January 2013|
Purpose and Scope
This test method is used to determine the fastness of colored textiles to the effects of acid perspiration. It is applicable to dyed, printed or otherwise colored textile fibers, yarns and fabrics of all kinds and to the testing of dyestuffs as applied to textiles.
Work by Committee RA52 showed this test will correlate with limited field studies. Prior to this there were acid and alkaline tests; however, as a result of these studies the alkaline test was eliminated (see 13.1).
