    Significance and Use

    4.1 It is important to recognize that all woven paint applicator fabrics are pile fabrics and can be a combination of several different yarns, in a range of densities, chemical compositions, and pile heights, which may influence painting performance.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the dimensions, terminology, and characteristics generally considered of importance to those dealing with woven paint applicator fabrics and describes methods for determining these parameters. This practice is not meant to be a definitive analytical method to deformulate woven fabrics.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    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.
