    Abstract

    This test method employs the grab procedures used to determine localized weakness due to bar-tacking in the pocket areas of all types of garments such as shirts, including the side or back pockets of trousers, pants, or jeans. To test its breaking strength, a specimen of the pocket area shall be mounted centrally in clamps of a constant-rate-of-extension tensile testing machine and a force shall be applied until the specimen breaks. Reports on the test results shall include the mode of failure and the location of where the break occurs.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method utilizes the grab procedures to determine localized weakness due to bar-tacking in the pocket areas of all types of garments. This can be utilized to test bar-tacking in the pockets of shirts, as well as side or back pockets of trousers, pants, or jeans.

    1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the 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.
