New Test Method for Standard Test Method for Airflow Resistance of Infant Products

1. Scope

1.1 This Test Method is intended to quantify the resistance to airflow in soft materials and infant products. This test method does not include performance specifications, which are left to individua


Infant bedding; SIDS; airflow; rebreathing


The infant product industry highlights "breathability" or "breathable" as a safety feature but there is no consensus on the meaning of those terms. A test method would help to quantify the level of "breathability".

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
