——LBT-M6 AATCC Washing Machine
This procedure is based on laundering methods and parameters originally devel- as part of various AATCC stan- As a stand-alone laundering protocol, it may be combined with other test methods, including those for appearance, care label verification, and flammability. A procedure fbr hand laundering may be found in AATCC LP2, Laboratory Procedure for Home Laundering: Hand Washing.
Standard laundering procedures remain consistent to allow valid comparison of results. Standard parameters represent, but may not exactly replicate, current consumer practices, which vary over time and among households. Alternate laundering parameters (water level, agitation, temperature, etc.) are updated periodically to more closely mirror consumer practices and allow use of available consumer machines, though different parameters may produce diflerent test results.
1.Purpose and Scope
1.1This procedure provides standard and alternate home laundering conditions using an automatic washing machine. While the procedure includes several options, it is not possible to include every existing combination of laundering parameters.
1.2This test is applicable to all fabrics and end products suitable fbr home laundering.
2.1Home laundering procedures, including washing in an automatic washing machine and several drying methods are described. Parameters for washing machines and tumble dryers are also included. The procedures described herein need to be combined with an appropriate test method to obtain and interpret results.
3.1laundering, n.—of textile materials, a process intended to remove soils and/or stains by treatment (washing) with an aqueous detergent solution and normally including rinsing, extraction and drying.
3.2stroke, n.―of washing machines, a single rotational movement of the washing machine drum.
NOTE: This motion can be in one direction (i.e., clockwise or counter-clockwise), or alternate back and forth. In either case, the motion shall be counted at each pa
