AATCC TM167-1986e5(2018)e, Foaming Propensity of Disperse Dyes
Developed in 1986 by AATCC Committee RA87; reaffirmed 1987, 1988, 1993, 1998, 2003, 2013, 2018; editorially revised 1989, 1991, 1997, 2010, 2019; reaffirmed and editorially revised 2008.
1. Purpose and Scope
1.1 Foam generation must be controlled in dyeing equipment such as jet machines which operate with high circulation and high agitation of the dye liquor at low bath ratios.
1.2 This test method provides a standard for measuring the foaming properties of disperse dyes under controlled conditions and determines the relative contribution of a single disperse dye to generate dyebath foam.
2.1 A quantity of disperse dye is prediluted, preheated and placed in a regular kitchen blender. Using a predetermined blender speed, the dye dispersion is blended for a specific time, transferred to a glass graduated cylinder and the foam and liquid levels are measured.
