    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the unrestrained shrinkage of a bundle of crimped or uncrimped staple fibers which show at least 10% shrinkage following a change in environment, for instance, boiling water for 15 min.

    1.1.1 This test method may be used on fibers from tow and fibers removed from spun or continuous filament yarn.

    Note 1-For measurement of dimensional changes or shrinkage of fabric and yarn, refer to Test Method D 5104.

    1.2 The values states in either inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as the standard. The values stated in each system must be used independently of the other.

    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.
