AATCC TM125, Test Method for Colorfastness to Perspiration and Light
Developed in 1967 by AATCC Committee RA23; jurisdiction transferred in 1996 to AATCC Committee RA50; reaffirmed 1971, 1974, 1978, 1989, 1991; revised 1982, 2004 (with title change), 2013; editorially revised and reaffirmed 1986, 2009, 2020; editorially revised 1990, 1993, 1996, 2005, 2010, 2014, 2019. Partially equivalent to ISO 105-B07.
1. Purpose and Scope
1.1 The purpose of this test method is to determine the effect of the combination of perspiration solution and light exposure on the colorfastness of a colored textile specimen. Therefore, only perspiration solutions will be used in this procedure.
2.1 A colored test specimen is immersed in a perspiration test solution for a specified period of time and immediately exposed to light in a fading apparatus for a specified period of time.
2.1.1 Fading apparatus will be the xenon-arc lamp test apparatus as described in AATCC Test Method 16.3, Colorfastness to Light: Xenon-Arc.
