Standard Test Method for
Fiber Cohesion in Roving, Sliver, and Top in Dynamic Tests1

This standard is issued under the fixed designation D 4120; 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. Scope

1.1 This test method describes the measurement of fiber
cohesion as the dynamic cohesive force required to maintain
drafting in rovings, slivers, or tops when they are subjected to
stress induced by passing between pairs of drafting rolls of
different surface speeds. The cohesive force is converted to
cohesive tenacity based on the linear density of the material.
NOTE 1—For static tests refer to Test Method D 2612.

1.2 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.
