Historical Standard: ASTM D2102-02 Standard Test Method for Shrinkage of Textile Fibers (Bundle Test)
SUPERSEDED (see Active link, below)
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the unrestrained shrinkage of a bundle of crimped or uncrimped fibers from exposure to some environment, for instance, boiling water for 15 min.
1.1.1 This test method may be used on fibers from tow and fibers removed from spun or continuous filament yarn.
Note 1For measurement of shrinkage of single fibers, refer to Test Method D 5104.
1.2 The values stated in either inch-pound or SI units are to be regarded separately as the standard. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents, therefore, each system must be used independently of the other.
1.3 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.
