AATCC Test Method 116-2013
Developed in 1966 by AATCC Committee RA38 (Revised 2013)
1. Purpose and Scope
This test method is used to determine the amount of color transferred from the
surface of colored textile materials to other surfaces by rubbing. It is
applicable to textiles made from all fibers in the form of yarn or fabric, whether
dyed, printed or otherwise colored and especially to prints where the singling
out of areas smaller than possible to test with the standard AATCC Crockmeter
(AATCC Test Method 8) is required.
A test specimen held at the base of the Rotary Vertical Crockmeter is rubbed with
standard test squares under controlled conditions.
