Web Development Hudson Horizons They may not meet the requirements for drapery use and ashm some cases for upholstery use, ergo; it is advised that a sample be submitted for testing prior to specification and purchase.
Industry Specifications & Tests
Cellulose fibers such as cotton and linen are easily treated because they readily absorb moisture. Physical Properties [ ACT testing standards ].
Both face and back are tested. Assesses the specimen’s ability to resist fading or color degradation when exposed to light Xenon-arc light source for a specified amount of time. This treatment retards the burning process, providing a longer egress time which is the amount of time required atm an occupant to escape safely from a fire.
Normally those c3597 intended for commercial applications will be treated against sublimation and are not affected. Specimens subjected to a growth medium are incubated at a set temperature over a specified number of days. Below are some frequent questions asked about flame resistant finishes:. This performance specification covers the performance requirements for plain, tufted, or flocked woven upholstery fabrics as used in the manufacture of new indoor furniture. Measures the maximum force applied to a material to force a rupture.
Colorfastness to Solvent Testing (ASTM D3597)
These listings are intended as a reference only. Association of Contact Textiles Website. This test utilizes nylon bristles to rub the surface of the test fabric for a specific amount of time. One clamp is stationary and the other moves away applying tension until the fabric breaks or ast.
Ratings are determined by the percentage of fabric’s surface affected by fungal activity. Acceptance Criteria for warp and fill Upholstery: Protein fibers such as wool and silk have inherent fire retardant qualities; consequently, they are easily treated to meet the most stringent fire codes.
Below are some important websites to visit for more information on their specific products:. Measures mass loss, expressed as a percent and drip burn. Yes, but flame treatment must be applied before Nano Tex.
These codes vary per location and application. To evaluate, the fabric being tested is put into a machine that grips d597 fabric with two clamps. Aspergillus nicer, Penicillium funiculosum, Chaetomium globusum, Aureobasidium pollutants and Trichoderma virus.
For Contract orders pertaining to public areas, please consult with your local Fire Marshal for appropriate testing standards.
The sewn fabric is then clamped at opposing side of the seam. No appreciable wear after 15, double rubs D357 appreciable wear after 30, double rubs Appreciable wear at fewer than 15, double rubs. Minimum Panels and Upholstered Walls: The number of pounds of pressure required to separate the sewn seam determines the rating. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject d35977 but are not provided as part of the standard.
The Wyzenbeek rating does not indicate a fabric’s resistance of or propensity toward other signs of use such as changes in luster or nap, pilling, perceptible loss in breaking strength, visible change in color or appearance, etc.
Usually three similar samples are tested with, and eventually rotations. Upholstery flammability tests For Contract orders pertaining to public areas, please consult with 3d597 local Fire Asgm for appropriate testing standards. These requirements apply to both the warp and filling directions for those factors where each fabric direction is pertinent. Fiber reactive dyes will only be used in cotton.
ASTM D /AATCC Colorfastness to Solvent of Dyed Textiles
This method is utilized for materials not ultimately glued to a surface. Measures the ignition resistance of a slightly restrained specimen when exposed to a very severe flame. Pilling is the formation of fuzzy balls of fiber on the surface of a fabric that remain attached to the fabric. It is essential that the post processor be alerted when a fiber reactive dye has been used so that the fabric can be properly treated.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Measures the ability of a sewn seam to resist slippage or breakage when subjected to tension. The Martindale rating does not indicate a fabric’s resistance of or propensity toward other signs of use such as changes in luster or nap, pilling, perceptible loss in breaking strength, visible change in color or appearance, etc.
