Test Method: SATRA TM254

Evaluation of degradation of elastanes in swimwear

June 2003

SCOPE

This SATRA test method is intended to assess the resistance of elastane-containing fabrics to an aqueous chlorine solution. The method is applicable to all types of swimwear that incorporate elastanes.

PRINCIPLE

A test specimen is immersed in chlorinated water of a known concentration for a period of 24 hours during which it is periodically stretched. The change in 100% modulus resulting from exposure to the chlorinated water is used to provide a measure of the resistance of the test specimen to degradation by chlorine solution.
