Active Standard ASTM D4769 | Developed by Subcommittee: D13.63
Book of Standards Volume: 07.02
Significance and Use
Upon mutual agreement between the purchaser and seller, fabrics intended for this end use should meet all the requirements listed in Table 1 of this specification.
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 by mutual agreement between the purchaser and seller.
If any of the requirements in Table 1 are modified by mutual agreement between purchaser and seller, any reference to the specification shall state that: “This fabric meets ASTM Specification D4769, except for the following characteristic(s).”
Where no prepurchase agreement has been reached between the purchaser and seller, and in case of controversy, the requirements listed in Table 1 are intended to be used as a guide only. As stated in 5.2, ultimate consumer demands dictate varying performance parameters for any particular style of fabric.
The significance and use of particular properties and test methods are discussed in the appropriate sections of the specified test methods.
1.1 This specification covers woven and warp knitted comforter fabrics, composed of any textile fiber, or mixture of fibers.
1.2 These requirements apply to the length and width directions for those properties where fabric direction is pertinent.
1.3 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods described in this 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.
