Standard Test Methods for Coated and Laminated Fabrics for Architectural Use
|Publication Date:||10 January 1997|
1.1 These test methods cover the testing of coated and laminated fabrics made primarily for use in fabric roof systems. These coated and laminated fabrics are generally in either an air supported or tension supported construction of fabric roof systems.
1.2 These methods can be used for most fiber-based, coated and laminated architectural fabrics.
1.3 This standard includes the following sections that provide test procedures for coated and laminated architectural fabrics:
|Mass per Unit Area||9|
|Adhesion of Coating to Fabric||14|
|Uniaxial Elongation Under Static Load||15|
|Fabric Breaking Force||16|
|Breaking Strength After Crease Fold||17|
|Elongation at Break||18|
|Fabric Trapezoid Tear Force||19|
|Resistance to Accelerated Weathering||20|
|Solar Optical Properties||21|
|Fabric Flame Resistance||22|
|Noise Reduction Coefficient||23|
1.4 These test methods include only testing procedures and do not include specifications or tolerances. They are intended as a guide for specifications. Any of these methods may be used in material specifications to evaluate requirements for a specific end use as related to a particular job.
1.5 The values stated in either SI or inch-pound units are to regarded separately as the standard. Within the text, the inch-pound units are shown in parentheses. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.
1.6 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.
