Standard Test Method for Assessing Clean Flax Fiber Fineness
|Publication Date:||1 July 2009|
|ICS Code (Yarns):||59.080.20|
This test method provides two options that cover the determination of the fineness of clean loose flax fibers by: Option 1, measuring the specific surface area by the resistance of a plug of flax fibers to air flow under prescribed conditions, or Option 2, estimating the mass per unit length.
NOTE 1-For other methods for determining the fineness of fibers refer to Appendix X1.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
