AATCC Test Method 42-2013
Developed in 1945 by AATCC Committee RA63
1. Purpose and Scope
This test method is applicable to any textile fabric, which may or may not have
been given a water-repellent finish. It measures the resistance of fabrics
to the penetration of water by impact, and thus can be used to predict the probable
resistance of fabrics to rain penetration resistance of garment fabrics.
