    Significance and Use

    5.1 Upon agreement between the purchaser and the supplier, fabrics intended for this end use should meet all of the requirements listed in Table 1 of this performance specification.

    5.2 It is recognized that for purposes of fashion or aesthetics the ultimate consumer of articles made from these fabrics may find acceptable fabrics that do not conform to all of the requirements in Table 1. Therefore, one or more of the requirements listed in Table 1 may be modified upon agreement between the purchaser and the supplier.

    5.2.1 In such cases, any references to the specification shall specify that. “This fabric meets ASTM Specification D4115 except for the following characteristic(s).”

    5.3 Where no prepurchase agreement has been reached between the purchaser and the supplier, and in case of controversy, the requirements listed in Table 1 are intended to be used as a guide only. As noted in 5.2, ultimate consumer demands dictate varying performance parameters for any particular style of fabric.

    5.4 The significance and use of particular properties and methods are discussed in the appropriate sections of the specified methods.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This performance specification covers woven and knitted fabrics comprised of any textile fiber or mixture of fibers to be used in women's and girls' dress gloves.

    1.2 This performance specification is not applicable to fabrics used for interlinings and industrial-protective clothing.

    1.3 These requirements apply to the length and width directions for those properties where each fabric direction is pertinent.

    1.4 The following precautinary statement pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 7, of this performance specification. 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.
