This guide covers procedures for testing nonwoven fabrics.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D13 on Textiles, this guide was withdrawn in March 2009 because D13 no longer has the technical expertise to maintain.
1.1 This guide covers procedures for testing nonwoven fabrics. The test procedures appear in the following sections:
|Breaking Force and Elongation||9|
|Mass Per Unit Area (Note 2)||17|
|Resin Binder Distribution||22|
|Seam Breaking Strength||13|
|Tongue Tear (Single Rip)||15|
Note 2—The terms "machine" and "cross machine" must be substituted for "warp" and "filling," respectively, throughout these test methods wherever pertinent.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only and may be approximate.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
