    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D3511 / D3511M - 15

    Developed by Subcommittee: D13.60 | Committee D13 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    At the pilling task group committee meeting in Houston January 2014 an overview of the various pilling methods was discussed. It became clear that ASTM D3511 was used mainly for heavy duty fabrics whereas the scope states that it is suitable for all fabrics. In order to assist users to choose the correct method for their fabrics it is felt that guidance should be given in the scope.
