Dimensional Changes in Commercial Laundering of Woven and Knitted Fabrics Except Wool
|Publication Date:||1 January 2012|
Purpose and Scope
This test method is used to determine the dimensional changes in woven and knitted fabrics made of fibers other than wool when subjected to laundering procedures commonly used in a commercial laundry. A range of laundering test procedures from severe to mild is provided to allow simulation of the various types of commercial launderings available. Five drying test procedures are established to cover the drying techniques used.
These tests are not accelerated and must be repeated to determine dimensional changes after multiple launderings.
