The test method is for the determination of the water absorbency of yarns, fabrics and garments. It can be used on textiles of any fiber content or contruction, inclulding woven, knit and non-woven.
The original test method for the measurement of absorbency of bleached textiles was developed to help textile dyeing and finishing mills determine the effect and efficiency of textile preparation and processing applications. Later, the test method was used as one of several measurements for judging water resistance and repellency (i.e., non-absorbency) of textile finish applications. After some time, the test method was also used to judge the durability of textile applications to home laundering.
