ISO Releases Textile Colorfastness Test Standards

June 17, 2016

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has published the following new standards for testing of colorfastness of textiles:

STANDARD DESCRIPTION
ISO 105-D02:2016 Textiles -- Tests for Colour Fastness -- Part D02: Colour Fastness to Rubbing: Organic Solvents Method for determining the resistance of the colour of textiles of all kinds and in all forms, except loose fiber, to the combined action of rubbing and of organic solvents used in spot-cleaning, localized "spotting" carried out by hand
ISO 105-X16:2016 Textiles -- Tests for Colour Fastness -- Part X16: Colour Fastness to Rubbing -- Small Areas Method for determining the resistance of the colour of textiles to rubbing off and staining other materials where the singling out of areas smaller than possible to test with the apparatus described in ISO 105‐X12 is required
ISO 105-X12:2016 Textiles -- Tests for Colour Fastness -- Part X12: Colour Fastness to Rubbing Method for determining the resistance of the colour of textiles of all kinds, including textile floor coverings and other pile fabrics, to rubbing off and staining other materials
ISO 105-G01:2016 Textiles -- Tests for Colour Fastness -- Part G01: Colour Fastness to Nitrogen Oxides Two methods for determining the resistance of the colour of textiles of all kinds and in all forms to the action of nitrogen oxides produced during combustion of gas, coal, oil, etc., and when air is passed over heated filaments
ISO 105-G04:2016 Textiles -- Tests for Colour Fastness -- Part G04: Colour Fastness to Nitrogen Oxides in the Atmosphere at High Humidities Method for determining the resistance of the colour of textiles to the action of nitrogen oxide in the atmosphere at elevated temperatures and high relative humidities

These standards were published on June 1, 2016.

ISO/FDIS 1144 Textiles -- Universal system for designating linear density (Tex System) is currently under development.
