AATCC Test Method 119-2013
Screen Wire Method
Developed in 1967 by AATCC Committee RR29 (Editorially Revised and Reaffirmed 2013)
1. Purpose and Scope
This test method is intended for evaluating the resistance of colored fabrics
to change in shade caused by flat abrasion. It can be used for all colored
fabrics, but is especially sensitive to the colored fabrics, but is especially
sensitive to the color change of durable press cross-dyed blend fabrics, in which
one fiber is abraded away faster than the other.
2.1 The fabric specimen is mounted over a foam rubber cushion and rubbed multidirectionally against a wire screen mounted on a weighted head. Any change in the color of the specimen is evaluated by comparison with the Gray Scale for Color Change.
