Liquid Moisture Management Properties of Textile Fabrics
in 2009 by AATCC Committee RA63
1. Purpose and Scope
1.1 This test method is for the measurement,
evaluation and classification of
liquid moisture management properties
of textile fabrics. The test method produces
objective measurements of liquid
moisture management properties of knitted,
woven and nonwoven textile fabrics.
1.2 The results obtained with this test
method are based on water resistance,
water repellency and water absorption
characteristics of the fabric structure, including
the fabric's geometric and
internal structure and the wicking characteristics
of its fibers and yarns.
