Description / Abstract:

This test method2,3 covers the determination of the efficiency of ordinary commercial wetting agents as defined in Terminology D459. This test method is applicable under limited and controlled conditions, but does not necessarily yield information correlating with specific end uses.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

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.

2 This test method is based on the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists Technical Manual, Test Methods—Physical Properties, Wetting Agents, Evaluation of, Standard Test Method 17 – 1952, Vol XXXIX, 1963, pp. B-133-B- 135, which is also American National Standard L 14.11 – 1956 of the American National Standards Institute.
