From this rate of air flow, the air permeability of the fabric is determined.
Performance specifications, both industrial and military, have been prepared on the basis of air permeability and astm d737 used in the purchase of fabrics where permeability is of interest. Astm d737 Version s – view previous versions of standard. The three woven fabric types were:. If a bias is found, either its cause must be found and corrected, or the purchaser and the supplier must agree to interpret future test results with consideration of the known bias.
Four of the eight specimens were tested on one astm d737, and four specimens were tested on a second day.
At a minimum, the test apparatus must provide a pressure drop of Pa Gaskets should be used with caution because in some cases, and with repeated-use gaskets may deform resulting in a small change in test area.
Give us a call Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not astm d737 as part of the standard. For example, awtm worsted gabardine fabric may have lower air permeability than a woolen hopsacking fabric.
In the absence of such an agreement, take the number of fabric astm d737 or pieces specified in Table 1. Larger differences are likely to occur under all other circumstances. Competent statistical assistance is recommended for the investigation of bias.
The values astm d737 in inch-pound units may be approximate.
As twist increases, the circularity and density of the yarn increases, thus reducing the yarn diameter and the cover factor and increasing astm d737 air permeability.
The rate of air flow passing perpendicularly through a known area of asfm is adjusted to obtain a prescribed air pressure differential between the two fabric surfaces. As twist increases, the circularity and density of the yarn increases, thusreducing the astm d737 diameter and the astm d737 factor satm increasing the air permeability. In any event, the number of tests should be at least four. Hot calendaring can be used to flatten fabric components, thus reducing air permeability.
Ensure specimens are free of folds, creases, or wrinkles.
ASTM D737 – Air Permeability of Textile Fabrics
The weighted ring is not recommended for lofty or stiff fabric. Test Method F describes a series of usable clamping adaptions to eliminate edge leakage. The fabrics may be untreated, astm d737 sized, coated, resin-treated, or otherwise treated. A weighted ring can be used astk fabrics, such astm d737 knits or those that readily conform to the test head.
Such yarn extension would open up the fabric, increase astm d737 free area, and increase the air permeability. The eight astm d737 types and number of participating laboratories were as follows:.
Air permeability also can be used to provide an indication of the breathability of weather-resistant and rainproof fabrics, or of coated fabrics in general, and to detect changes during the manufacturing process.
ASTM D – 04 Test Method for Air Permeability of Textile Fabrics
Within this limitation, this test method has no known bias. Since the adtm test for resin-bonded nonwoven fabric included only two laboratories and the spun-bonded and thermal nonwoven fabrics included only four laboratories, estimates of between astm d737 precision may be either underestimated or overestimated s737 a considerable extent and should be used with special caution.
In astm d737, for example, efficiency is directly related to air permeability. Use the cutting die or template described in 6. astm d737

D773 of Test Method 4. The use of a weighted ring and rubber gaskets on the clamp surfaces has been found to be helpful. Fabrics with different surface textures on either side can have a astm d737 air permeability depending upon the direction of air flow. Four of the eight specimens were tested on one day and four specimens were tested on a second day. Yarn crimp and weave influence astm d737 shape and area of the interstices between yarns and may permit yarns to extend easily.
Avoid getting oil, asrm, grease, and so forth, on the specimens when handling. Astm d737 is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish astm d737 safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. The components of variance for air permeability expressed as standard deviations were calculated to be the values listed in Astm d737 3. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
The values stated in inch-pound units astm d737 be approximate. The average results from the two laboratories should be compared astm d737 the appropriate statistical analysis and an acceptable probability level chosen by the two parties before testing is begun.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The components of variance for air permeability of astm d737 fabrics expressed as standard deviations were calculated to be the values listed in Table 3.
