ASTM International Committee D13 and AATCC publish numerous test methods, practices and performance guidelines that are used by producers as well as users of textile products. Occasionally, the industry encounters a situation in which test methods, performance standards, or collective body of information has not been developed by either ASTM International D13 or AATCC. Individual companies, in some cases, may have developed their own protocols to assess new or needed properties. Further, marketing terms can come into use without measurement tools to describe attributes useful for every circumstance of use.
This booklet is a compilation of such documents. It contains standard test methods in use and measurement procedures developed by some companies. Some of the unofficial test procedures may be introduced for balloting within ASTM International or AATCC. This might result in revisions to existing standards or the creation of new standards. This Moisture Management Technical Supplement (MM TS) is a stand-alone document and is not intended to be revised or amended as its only purpose is to collect information on the topic of moisture management at the date of its publication.
