ASTM WK33654

    New Test Method for Shrinkage of Carpet Backing Fabrics

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D13.21 | Committee D13 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This test method covers the procedure for evaluating shrinkage, in both wet and dry conditions, of woven, knitted and nonwoven backing fabrics designed for use in the manufacture of pile yarn floor coverings.

    This method describing shrinkage needed to be split out from D2646, which otherwise is written as a guide, and describes no other test procedures.



    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
