4.2 It is recognized that for purposes of fashion or aesthetics the ultimate consumer of articles made from these fabrics may find acceptable fabrics that do not conform to all of the requirements in Table 1; therefore, one or more of the requirements may be modified by mutual agreement between the purchaser and the seller.

4.2.1 In such cases, any references to the specification shall specify that: This fabric meets Performance Specification D3562 except for the following characteristic(s).

4.3 Where no prepurchase agreement has been reached between the purchaser and the seller, and in case of controversy, the requirements listed in Table 1 are intended to be used as a guide only. As noted in 4.2, ultimate consumer demands dictate varying performance parameters for any particular style of fabric.

4.4 The significance and uses of particular properties and test methods are discussed in the appropriate sections of the specified test methods.

Scope

1.1 This performance specification covers woven drycleanable topcoats, overcoats, and dress coat outer fabrics composed of any textile fiber or mixture of textile fibers.

1.2 This performance specification is not applicable to woven fabrics used for linings, interlinings, rainwear garments, and all-purpose, water-repellent garments nor is this performance specification applicable to bonded or laminated fabrics.

1.3 These requirements apply to both the length and width directions for those properties where each fabric direction is pertinent.

1.4 When a fabric requires special treatment, specific methods will be described as they are developed for that material, and such special tests will have precedence over these general requirements.

1.5 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Section 7, of this performance specification: 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.
