This test method determines the elongation characteristics of
narrow elastic fabrics made from natural or man-made elastomers,
either alone or in combination with other textile fibers, when
tested with a static load testing procedure before or after
NOTE 1—For determination of similar characteristics using the
constant-rate-of-extension (CRE) type tensile testing machine,
refer to Test Method D 4964.
NOTE 2—For determination of similar characteristics using the
constant-rate-of load (CRL) type tensile testing machine, refer to
Test Method D 1775.
The use of this test method requires the selection of, or mutual
agreement upon, the effective static load at which the test results
will be determined.
Laundering procedures used will be those specified in Test
Method AATCC 135 for 3 washing and drying cycles.
The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI units are to
be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the inch-pound
units are shown in brackets. 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 specifications.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety
problems, 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.
