Developed in 1965 by AATCC Committee RR68; jurisdiction transferred to AATCC Committee RA45 2012; reaffirmed 1968,1972, 1989, 1998, 2003; revised 1975, 1978, 1982, 1984, 1993, 2020; technical correction 1983; editorially revised 1985, 1986, 2010, 2011, 2019 (with title change); editorially revised and reaffirmed 1990 (with new title), 2008, 2014.
1. Purpose and Scope
1.1 This test method is applicable to textile fabrics that evolve formaldehyde, particularly fabrics finished with chemicals containing formaldehyde. It provides accelerated storage conditions and an analytical means for determining the amount of formaldehyde released under the conditions of accelerated storage.
2.1 A weighed fabric specimen is suspended over water in sealed jar. The jar is placed in an oven at a controlled temperature for a specified length of time. The amount of formaldehyde absorbed by the water is then determined colorimetrically.
