ASTM WK45484

    Revision of D3888 - 12 Standard Terminology for Yarn Spinning Systems

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D3888 - 12

    Developed by Subcommittee: D13.58 | Committee D13 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    D3888 was reapproved in 2012 but some terms need clarification and a new term with a description added. The terms that need clarification are: open-end, air-jet and compact-spun yarns. The new term proposed to be added to the standard is rotor-spun yarn as Figure 5 is labeled Schematic Diagram of Rotor Spinning.
