Foreword

         This test method and its accompanying evaluation tools were developed for evaluation of woven fabrics with a durable press finish. It is common industry practice to use the method and scales for evaluation of other textile materials although some specimens may have different appearance characteristics due to different fabric constructions.

         Standard laundering procedures remain consistent to allow valid comparison of results. Standard procedures represent, but may not exactly replicate, current consumer practices, which vary over time

and among households. Alternate laundering procedures and machine parameters may be found in Laboratory Procedure (LP) 1, Home Laundering: Machine Washing (see 12.3).

 

1. Purpose and Scope

1.1 This test method is intended to determine the smoothness appearance of fabric, seams, and pressed-in creases in garments and other textile products after being subjected to home laundering procedures.

1.2 Any washable textile end product may be evaluated for smoothness appearance, seam smoothness and crease retention using this method.

1.3 Textile end products containing fabrics of any construction, such as woven, knit and nonwoven, may be evaluated according to this method.

1.4 Techniques for seaming and creasing are not outlined since the purpose is to evaluate textile end products as they will be supplied from manufacturing or as ready for use.
