WHEN THE WYZENBEEK METHOD IS USED TO MEASURE THE ABRASION RESISTANCE OF AN UPHOLSTERY FABRIC, A "CYCLE" IS CONSIDERED TO BE:
A DOUBLE RUB
MEASUREMENTS OF THE TEAR STRENGTH OF UPHOLSTERY FABRIC ARE MADE
TO PREDICT THE LIKELIHOOD THAT A SMALL TEAR OR PUNCTURE WOULD BECOME A LARGE TEAR
WITH PILE UPHOLSTERY FABRICS, MEMBERS OF THE UPHOLSTERED FURNITURE INDUSTRY RECOMMEND THAT PACKAGING, STORING, AND HANDLING BE CONTROLLED TO AVOID:
CHANGES IN APPARENT COLOR
UPHOLSTERY FABRICS EXHIBITING FASTNESS TO WATER OR SOLVENT
SHOULD NOT EXHIBIT UNACCEPTABLE LEVELS OF BLEEDING AND/OR MIGRATION
A COLOR-RELATED PROBLEM IN WHICH THE COLORANT MOVES THROUGH THE FABRIC, PRODUCING VARIED LEVELS OF COLOR SATURATION OR INTENSITY IS KNOWN AS
MIGRATION
THE LEVEL OF CROCKING IS EVALUATED USING
THE INTERNATIONAL GEOMETRIC GRAY SCALE FOR EVALUATING STAINING
CARE CODE USED WITH UPHOLSTERY FABRIC; INDICATES THAT WATER-OR PETROLEUM-BASED SOLVENTS SHOULD BE USED IS
W-S
CARE CODE USED WITH UPHOLSTERY FABRIC; INDICATES THAT NEITHER WATER- OR PETROLEUM-BASED SOLVENTS SHOULD BE USED; CAN USE VACUUMING OR LIGHT BRUSHING ONLY IS:
X
CARE CODE USED WITH UPHOLSTERY FABRICS; INDICATES THAT THE FABRIC SHOULD BE CLEANED WITH WATER BASED SOLVENTS IS
W
CARE CODE USED WITH UPHOLSTERY FABRICS; INDICATES THAT PETROLEUM-BASED SOLVENTS SHOULD BE USED IS
S
ABRASION RESISTANCE
ABILITY OF A TEXTILE STRUCTURE TO RESIST DAMAGE AND FIBER LOSS BY FRICTION
BOW
DISTORTED YARN ALIGNMENT IN WOVEN FABRIC; FILLING YARNS CURVE BELOW STRIAGHT CROSSWISE GRAIN.
BLEEDING
LOSS OR MIGRATION OF COLOR WHEN DYE MIXES WITH FLUIDS
BREAKING FORCE
INDICATES THE LOAD REQUIRED TO RUPTURE A FIBER, YARN OR FABRIC
COLORFASTNESS
ABILITY OF A COLORANT OR DYESTUFF TO RETAIN ITS ORIGINAL COLOR CHARACTERISTICS
DIMENSIONAL STABILITY
ABILITY OF A TEXTILE STRUCTURE TO MAINTAIN ITS SIZE AND SHAPE AFTER USE AND CARE
FUME FADING
COLOR CHANGE TYPICALLY SEEN WITH ACETATE DYED BLUE, BROWN, OR GREEN WITH DISPERSE DYESTUFFS AND EXPOSED TO OXIDES OF NITROGEN OR SULFER
GROWTH
UNRECOVERED ELONGATION
OFF-GRAIN FABRICS
YARN ALIGNMENT THAT EXHIBITS FILLING FILLING BOW OR FILLING SKEW.
PATTERN REPEATS
A REPETITION OF THE FULL PATTERN OF MOTIFS AND GROUND
PILLING
FORMATION OF PILLS ON THE SURFACE OF TEXTILE FABRICS
TENSILE STRENGTH
FORCE PER UNIT OF CROSS-SECTIONAL AREA NECESSARY TO RUPTURE A FABRIC.
SHRINKAGE
FIBERS AND/OR YARNS BECOME PROGRESSIVELY SHORTER DURING USE AND CARE
SKEW
DISTORTED YARN ALIGNMENT IN WOVEN FABRIC; FILLING YARNS SLANT BELOW STRAIGHT CROSSWISE GRAIN
TEAR STRENGTH
FORCE REQUIRED TO CONTINUE OR PROPOGATE A TEAR IN A FABRIC
