    Significance and Use

    The procedure is primarily intended to evaluate the ability of a leather specimen to withstand fixed, and rather strenuous, laundering conditions. This test method is not intended as a recommended washing procedure, neither household nor commercial. The resulting area stability is determined.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of launderability of dyed leathers with or without a pigment finish. This test method does not apply to wet blue.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    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.
