    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of change in shade and of staining of zipper stringers under drycleaning conditions. This test method is applicable to the textile portion of zipper stringers of all materials.

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

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of whoever uses this standard to consult and establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
