AATCC Test Method 76-2011
Electrical Surface Resistivity of Fabrics

Developed in 1954 by AATCC Committee RA32

1.  Purpose and Scope

1.1  The purpose of this test method is to determine the electrical surface resistivity of fabrics.  The surface electrical resistivity may influence the accumulation of electrostatic charge of a fabric.

2.  Principle

2.1  Specimens at equilibrium with specified atmospheric conditions of relative humidity and temperature are measured for electrical resistance between parallel electrodes by means of an electrical resistance meter.
