    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the resistance to abrasion of woven and knitted textile fabrics, both conditioned and wet, using the inflated diaphragm tester. This procedure is not applicable to floor coverings. Note 1 - Other procedures for measuring the abrasion resistance of textile fabrics are given in Test Methods D 3884, D 3885, D 1175, and AATCC Test Method 93.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard; the values in English units are provided as information only and are not exact equivalents.

    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.
