AATCC TM170-2016, Dusting Propensity of Powder Dyes: Evaluation of
Developed in 1987 by Committee RA87; editorially revised and reaffirmed 1988, 1989 (title change), 1996; editorially revised 1992, 2004, 2008; reaffirmed 2001, 2006, 2011, 2016, 2017.
1. Purpose and Scope
1.1 This test method provides a standard method for the evaluation of dusting properties of powder dyes.
1.2 The method of assessment permits the assignment of a numerical rating describing the degree of dusting; or, conversely, the degree of non-dusting of powder dyes
1.3 This test method is not intended for a quantitative determination of dusting. Water soluble dyes may give an inferior rating than an equal amount of dusting caused by disperse dyes. Further studies indicated that not all factors; i.e., humidity, are fully controlled. Also the method does not distinguish between slow and fast settling dust.
