    Significance and Use

    5.1 Upon agreement between the purchaser and the seller, 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 seller.

    5.2.1 In such cases, any references to the specification shall specify that: “This fabric meets ASTM Specification D4119 except for the following characteristic(s).”

    5.3 Where no prepurchase agreement has been reached between the purchaser and the seller, 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 uses and significance of particular properties and methods are discussed in the appropriate sections of the specified methods.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This performance specification covers knitted fabrics comprised of any textile fiber or mixture of fibers, used in men's and boy's dress shirts.

    1.2 This performance specification is not applicable to knitted fabrics used for interlinings.

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

    1.4 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.
