Scope of this Standard

Specifies a method for the determination of the dimensional change(shrinkage or stretch) of all types of woven fabrics after commercial laundering near the boiling point. The test has been devised principally for cotton fabrics. If it is applied to other fabrics such as linen or regenerated cellulosic fibres, sub-clause 9 i) should be consulted. The method is intended only for the assessment of dimensional changes undergone by a woven fabric subjected to a single laundering. When it is desired to determine the amount of progressive dimensional change, the test specimen may be washed repeatedly and the results reported so as clearly to indicate the amount of dimensional change in the laundered specimen as compared with the original dimensions of the unwashed specimen and the number of testing cycles to which the specimen has been subjected.
