Examples of products that can be tested with this method
All types of fabrics, textiles and building materials, which are thinner than or equal to than 3.5 mm.

Material consumption during test

Complete test

6 tests 10 test specimens, 5 specimens in one direction (e.g. production direction) and 5 specimens in perpendicular direction to the first direction, with the dimension 50 mm x 300 mm.

Indicative test

1 test 2 test specimens, with the dimension 50 mm x 300 mm.

Test procedure

Test specimens shall be taken from both warp and weft directions. The same warp and weft threads shall not exist on several test specimens. The test takes place inside a test chamber with an open ceiling and an opening on the front side bottom. The conditioned test specimen is hanged in a vertical position and held in place by clamps.
