Developed in 1965 by AATCC Committee RR35
1. Purpose and Scope
1.1 This test method is a simplified procedure for testing multiple samples to determine the potential damage that may be caused by chlorine bleaching.
2.1 The samples are chlorine bleached in a domestic-type laundry machine, rinsed, dried and pressed between hot metal plates. The damaging action of the retained chlorine is calculated from the difference in tensile strength before and after pressing.
