Standard Guide for
Abrasion Resistance of Textile Fabrics (Rotary Platform,
This standard is issued under the fixed designation D 3884; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of the last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.
1.1 This guide covers the determination of the abrasion
resistance of textile fabrics using the rotary platform, doubleheader tester (RPDH).
NOTE 1—Other procedures for measuring the abrasion resistance of
textile fabrics are given in Test Methods D 3885, D 3886, D 1775,
D 4158, D 4966, and AATCC 61.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as
standard: the values in English units are provided as information only and are not exact equivalents.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the
safety problems, 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.
