AATCC 170-2016 Dusting Propensity of Powder Dyes: Evaluation of
: Brown Technical Book Store
1. Purpose and Scope 1.1 This test method provides a standard method for the evaluation of dusting properties of powder dyes. 1.2 The method of assessment permits the assignment of a numerical rating describing the degree of dusting; or, conversely, the degree of non-dusting of powder dyes 1.3 This test method is not intended for a quantitative determination of dusting. Water soluble dyes may give an inferior rating than an equal amount of dusting caused by disperse dyes. Further studies indicated that not all factors; i.e., humidity, are fully controlled. Also the method does not distinguish between slow and fast settling dust.
