    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Explains terms used in conditioning and testing textile materials. Defines the principal terms relating to the quantification of the mass of water and extractable matter contained in a textile material. May be used in the determination of the commercial mass of a consignment of textile material, in the determination of linear, area and volume densities of textile materials and in the determination of the composition by mass of the different components of a mixture of textile fibres.
