Test Method 15-2009
Developed in 1949 by AATCC Committee RA52; Transferred to Committee RA23 in 2006
1. Purpose and Scope
This test method is used to determine the fastness of colored textiles to the
effects of acid perspiration. It is applicable to dyed, printed or otherwise
colored textile fibers, yarns and fabrics of all kinds and to the testing of dyestuffs
as applied to textiles.
2.1 A specimen of colored textile in contact with other fiber materials (for color transfer) is wet out in simulated acid perspiration solution, subjected to a fixed mechanical pressure and allowed to dry slowly at a slightly elevated temperature. After conditioning, the specimen is evaluated for color change and the other fiber materials are evaluated for color transfer.
