Test Method 164-2013
to Oxides of Nitrogen in the Atmosphere
under High Humidities
in 1985 by AATCC Committee RA33
Purpose and Scope
This test method is used to determine the resistance of the color of textiles
to the action of oxides of nitrogen in the atmosphere at elevated temperatures
with relative humidities above 85%.
1.2 On certain fibers, dyes do not
readily fade at humidities below 85%. Testing at higher humidities is required
to produce color changes that predict service fading under warm, humid conditions.
