    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers primarily the determination of ignition loss of glass fiber textiles. This method applies to glass fiber strands, twisted or untwisted, coated or uncoated; and fabrics, woven, nonwoven, knitted, coated, and uncoated, and chopped strand. This procedure may be applied to other glass textiles where the amount of organic content obtained by ignition loss is required.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D13 on Textiles, this practice was withdrawn in January 2020 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers primarily the determination of ignition loss of glass fiber textiles. This method applies to glass fiber strands, twisted or untwisted, coated or uncoated; and fabrics, woven, nonwoven, knitted, coated, and uncoated, and chopped strand. This procedure may be applied to other glass textiles where the amount of organic content obtained by ignition loss is required.

    Note 1—This test method may be used with other glass fiber classifications, such as C or D, but a different ignition temperature and exposure time may be required. In these cases the manufacturer should be consulted for the appropriate ignition conditions.

    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.
