Synthetic fibers such as nylon and polyester do not absorb moisture but can be treated with special formulas.

This method is utilized for materials not ultimately glued to a surface. Measures the ability to resist ignition by a smoldering cigarette when the specimen is tested in combination with polyurethane foam cushioning.

Minimum Drapery fabric over 6 oz. Assesses the specimen’s ability to resist fading or color degradation when exposed to light Xenon-arc light source for a specified amount of time. The number of pill balls are counted and given a 1 — 5 rating.
