Tests shall be made to determine the properties of the material in accordance with the following test methods: This test utilizes nylon bristles to rub the surface of the test fabric for a specific amount of time.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Both face and back are tested.

ASTM D /AATCC Colorfastness to Solvent of Dyed Textiles

Aspergillus nicer, Penicillium funiculosum, Chaetomium globusum, Aureobasidium pollutants and Trichoderma virus. The tension is increased until the seam separates to a specific distance.

One clamp is moved away from the other applying tension at the sewn seam. Fiber reactive dyes will only be used in cotton. Fabric does not ignite. The number of pounds required to cause separation due to yarn slippage determines the rating.


It is important to check with the site’s local fire marshal for the code each fabric application must meet. This test is performed in both the warp and filling directions.

It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

Association of Contact Textiles Website. The degree depends on the fiber content and concentration.

ASTM D3597 – 02(2013)

Yes, but flame treatment must be applied before Nano Tex. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Non-saline and fire resistant back coatings can eliminate the problem. Enter your email address and name below to be the first to know.

One clamp is stationary and the other moves away applying tension until the fabric breaks or ruptures.

Colorfastness to Solvent Testing (ASTM D3597)

Measures the propensity of a fabric to form pills bunches or balls of tangled fibers that are held to the surface by one or more fibers. It is essential that the post processor be alerted when a fiber reactive dye has been used so that the fabric can be properly treated.

Measures the ability to resist ignition by a smoldering cigarette when the specimen is tested in combination with polyurethane foam cushioning. Protein fibers such as wool and silk have inherent fire retardant qualities; consequently, they are easily treated to meet the most stringent fire codes.


Casements shrink much more. Minimum Panels and Atsm Walls: Upholstery, Panels and Upholstered Walls: Link to Active This link will always route d397 the current Active version of the standard. Specimens are brushed with a nylon bristle brush for 4 minutes to create fuzzing and then rubbed face to face for 2 minutes to create pilling.

Select substrate to adhere the specimen according to the end use. Seam Slippage is the movement of yarns in a fabric that occurs when it is pulled apart at a seam.

No appreciable wear after 15, double rubs No appreciable wear after 30, double rubs Appreciable wear at fewer than 15, double rubs. Synthetic fibers such as nylon and polyester do not absorb moisture but can be treated with special formulas. Rating System for Regular Surface Effect: Measures the ignition resistance of a slightly restrained specimen when exposed to a very severe flame.
