1.1 This test method covers the determination of crimp contraction, residual fiber shrinkage and their variability of all types of filament yarns (partially oriented yarn (POY), fully oriented yarn (FOY), flat yarns, textured and bulked continuous filament (BCF) carpet yarns) using an automated tester.
Note 1—For another method of testing crimp in textured yarns, refer to Test Method D4031.
1.1.1 This method may also be used for non-textured yarns.
1.2 This test method is limited to crimped, multi-filament yarns ranging from 22.0 to 890 dtex (15 to 800 denier) and for BCF yarns from 890 to 4200 dtex (800 to 3800 denier).
1.3 The values stated in either SI or US customary units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the U.S. customary units are in parentheses. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the method.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. 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.
