Standard Performance Specification for Woven Slipcover Fabrics

Significance and Use

5.1 Fabrics intended for this end-use should meet all of the requirements listed inTable 1 .

5.2 It should be recognized that fabrics can be produced with an almost infinite number of combination of construction variables (for example, type of fibers, percentage of fibers, yarn twist, yarn number, warp and pick count, chemical and mechanical finishes). Additionally, fashion or aesthetics dictate that the ultimate consumer may find acceptable articles made from fabrics that do not conform to all of the requirements in Table 1.

5.2.1 Hence, no single performance specification can possibly apply to all the various fabrics that could be utilized for this end-use.

5.3 The uses and significance 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 fabrics comprised of any textile fiber or mixture of fibers to be used in slipcovers.

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

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.
