1. Purpose and Scope
1.1 This test method is intended for evaluating the resistance of colored fabrics to change in shade caused by flat abrasion.
1.2 It can be used for all colored fabrics, but is especially sensitive to the colored fabrics, but is especially sensitive to the color change of durable press cross-dyed blend fabrics, in which one fiber is abraded away faster than the other.
2.1 The fabric specimen is mounted over a foam rubber cushion and rubbed multidirectionally against a wire screen mounted on a weighted head. Any change in the color of the specimen is evaluated by comparison with the Gray Scale for Color Change.
