Test Standards - Textiles & Fabrics
Standard Description
ASTM D1388 This test method covers the measurement of stiffness properties of fabrics. Bending length is measured and flexural rigidity is calculated.
ASTM D1683 This test method measures the sewn seam strength in woven fabrics by applying a force perpendicular to the sewn seams.
ASTM D2061 These test methods cover the determination of the strengths for zipper and zipper parts.
ASTM D2136 Fabrics coated with rubber or rubber-like materials display increased stiffening when exposed to decreasing ambient temperatures. This test method describes a simple pass/fail procedure whereby material flexibility at a specified low temperature can be determined. Failure is indicative of unacceptability of the coated fabric for use at that temperature.
ASTM D2208 This test method covers the determination of the breaking strength of leather by the grab method. It is intended for use on light, soft leathers; boarded, sueded, or embossed leathers tested on a specimen in the form of a rectangle piece; narrow strap, welt, lace, and round belt leathers; or other leathers that cannot be accurately tested by Test Method D2209. This test method does not apply to wet blue.
ASTM D2209 This test method covers the determination of the load required to rupture a leather test specimen having a 1/2-in. (12.7-mm) width. The load to rupture divided by the original unstretched cross-sectional area gives the tensile strength. It may be used for all types of leather that are smooth and firm enough to permit accurate thickness measurements.
ASTM D2211 This test method covers the measurement of the elongation or stretch characteristics of leather produced by a tensile load.
ASTM D2212 This test method covers the determination of the slit tear resistance of light leathers such as shoe uppers, gloves, and upholstery.
ASTM D2213 This test method covers the determination of the compressibility of sole leather.
ASTM D2261 This test method covers the measurement of the tearing strength of textile fabrics by the tongue (single rip) procedure using a recording constant-rate-of-extension-type (CRE) tensile testing machine.
ASTM D2594 This test method covers the measurement of fabric stretch and fabric growth of knitted fabrics intended for applications requiring low-power stretch properties.
ASTM D3107 This test method covers the determination of the amount of fabric stretch, fabric growth, and fabric recovery of fabrics woven in whole or in part from stretch yarns after a specified tension and extension.
ASTM D4393 This test method covers the determination of peel adhesion of reinforcing fabrics that are bonded to rubber compounds. It is applicable to either woven or parallel cord textile structures from both natural and manmade fibers and to parallel steel cord structures.
ASTM D4704 This test method is intended for determining the tearing strength of leather by measuring the force required to tear a specimen cut perpendicular to the surface.
ASTM D4705 This test method is intended for use in determining the stitch tearing resistance of leather using a double hole tear. It is particularly applicable to lightweight leathers.
ASTM D4786 This test method is intended for determining the stitch-tearing strength of leather with a tear originating from one hole. It is particularly applicable to heavy leather.
ASTM D4831 This test method is intended for use on all types of leather to determine the load required to tear a leather strap fastened in a buckle.
ASTM D5034 This test method covers the grab and modified grab test procedures for determining the breaking strength and elongation of most textile fabrics. Provisions are made for wet testing.
ASTM D5035 This test method covers raveled strip and cut strip test procedures for determining the breaking force and elongation of most textile fabrics. Provision is made for wet testing.
ASTM D5170 This test method covers the measurement of the peel strength of hook and loop touch fasteners using a recording constant-rate-of-extension tensile testing machine (CRE).
ASTM D5587 This test method covers the measurement of the tearing strength of textile fabrics by the trapezoid procedure using a recording constant-rate-of-extension-type (CRE) tensile testing machine.
ASTM D5733 This test method covers the measurement of the tearing strength of nonwoven fabrics by the trapezoid procedure using a recording constant-rate-of-extension (CRE) tensile testing machine.
ASTM D5735 This test method covers the measurement of the tearing strength of nonwoven fabrics by the tongue (single rip) procedure using a recording constant-rate-of-extension (CRE) tensile testing machine.
ASTM D6077 This test method covers the measurement of the tearing load of nonwoven fabrics by the trapezoid method for leather.
ASTM D6571 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.
ASTM D6614 This test method covers the determination of the amount of fabric stretch and fabric growth after a specified extension and held for a specified time.
ASTM D6644 This test method measures the resistance of the bridge of a sew-through button to a steadily increasing strain.
ASTM D6775 This test method covers the determination of the breaking strength and elongation of textile webbing, tape and braided materials using a split-drum type specimen clamp.
ASTM D6797 This test method describes the measurement for bursting strength of woven and knitted textiles taken from rolls of fabric or fabric taken from garments.
