Standard Test Method for Determination of Compression Resistance and Recovery Properties of Highloft Nonwoven Fabric Using Static Force Loading
|Publication Date:||10 September 2001|
|ICS Code (Textile fabrics):||59.080.30|
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of compression resistance and recovery properties of any type of highloft nonwoven fabric using a simplistic and economical applied static weight loading technique.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. 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.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values stated in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 This test method offers two options for the measurement of compression resistance and recovery properties. Option 1 contains fewer steps and is, therefore, simpler. Option 2 makes more measurements and provides more details about the behavior of a fabric under these test conditions.
