Ft 5 Rs 3 2 where: Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.

Otherwise, discard the specimen and replace with another one. D — 09 Record values as read from the direct reading scale to the nearest mN gf.

Summary of Test Method 4.

Seal Strength system to test 3 sides seal bags. If zero is not registered, adjust the pointer stop until the zero reading is obtained. For fabrics not readily wet out with water, such as those treated with waterrepellent, or water resistant materials, add a 0. When specimens are to be tested wet, cut from areas adjacent to the dry test specimens. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.


Each capacity scale requires its own calibrated mass. Take the specimens to be used for the measurement of the cross-machine with the longer dimension parallel to the cross-machine direction.

Larger differences are likely to occur under all other circumstances. Use the cutting die described in 6. It measures the amount of energy required to perform the tearing operation by measuring the peak follow-through angle of the pendulum after the tearing action.

This standard has been approved for use by agencies of the Department of Defense. Preferably the clamps may be air actuated, but manual s1424 is permitted. Ensure the black sensing strip on the pendulum is clean of? Current edition approved Jan. The components of variance for Elmendorf d124 strength expressed as standard deviations were calculated to be the values listed in Table 3.

The clamping surface in each jaw is at least 25 mm 1. Instructions are provided for testing specimens with, or without, wetting.

Four of the eight specimens were tested on one day and four specimens were tested on a second day.
