AATCC 114-2016 Chlorine, Retained, Tensile Loss: Multiple Sample Method
: Brown Technical Book Store
1. Purpose and Scope 1.1 This test method is a simplified procedure for testing multiple samples to determine the potential damage that may be caused by chlorine bleaching. 2. Principle 2.1 The samples are chlorine bleached in a domestic-type laundry machine, rinsed, dried and pressed between hot metal plates. The damaging action of the retained chlorine is calculated from the difference in tensile strength before and after pressing.
