ASTM WK44873

    Revision of D5489 - 07(2013)e1 Standard Guide for Care Symbols for Care Instructions on Textile Products

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D5489 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: D13.62 | Committee D13 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Draft proposal to update D5489-13 to recognize alternative solvents was discussed at Jan D13.62 Committee Meeting on 26, 2014. Per Committee suggestion, the proposal to revise text in section 5.8.2 is best managed as a separate ballot item from the proposed changes to Figures 1 and 2. This Work item accordingly advances the changes to Figures 1 and 2 as a separate ballot item. WK43785 would now encompass changes to text in section 5.8.2.
