AATCC TM114-2016, Test Method for Chlorine, Retained, Tensile Loss: Multiple Sample
Developed in 1965 by AATCC Committee RR35; reaffirmed 1967, 1971, 1974, 1977, 1980, 1989, 1999; editorially revised and reaffirmed 1985, 1994, 2005, 2011; editorially revised 1992, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2019; Technical correction 2010; revised 2016.
1. Purpose and Scope
1.1 This test method is a simplified procedure for testing multiple samples to determine the potential damage that may be caused by chlorine bleaching.
2.1 The samples are chlorine bleached in a domestic-type laundry machine, rinsed, dried and pressed between hot metal plates. The damaging action of the retained chlorine is calculated from the difference in tensile strength before and after pressing.
