    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the permanent deformation of bare, continuous elastomeric monofilaments and filament yarns made from rubber, spandex, anidex, or other elastomers subjected to prolonged periods of tension. This test method is applicable to elastomeric yarns having a linear density in the range from 4 to 320 tex (36 to 2900 den.).

    1.2 This test method is not applicable to covered, wrapped, core-spun yarns, or yarns spun from elastomeric staple.

    1.3 This test method was developed using yarns in the "as-received" condition, but may be used for treated yarns provided the treatment is specified.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    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.
