This document specifies quantitative test methods to determine the antibacterial activity of all antibacterial textile products including nonwovens. This document is applicable to all textile products, including cloth, wadding, thread and material for clothing, bedclothes, home furnishings and miscellaneous goods, regardless of the type of antibacterial agent used (organic, inorganic, natural or man-made) or the method of application (built-in, after-treatment or grafting). This document covers three inoculation methods for the determination of antibacterial activity: a) absorption method (an evaluation method in which the test bacterial suspension is inoculated directly onto specimens); b) transfer method (an evaluation method in which test bacteria are placed on an agar plate and transferred onto specimens); c) printing method (an evaluation method in which test bacteria are placed on a filter and printed onto specimens). NOTEÂ Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Based on the intended application and on the environment in which the textile product is to be used, and also on the surface properties of the textile properties, the user can select the most suitable inoculation method. This document also specifies the colony plate count method and the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) luminescence method for measuring the enumeration of bacteria.

This document specifies a method for determining the colour fastness and ageing properties of all kinds
and forms of dyed and printed textiles and/or other organic substrates under the action of an artificial
light source representative of natural daylight (D65), and under the simultaneous action of heat. Of the
five different sets of exposure conditions specified (see 7.1.1), four use D65, and the other one uses a
somewhat lower cut-off wavelength. The test method gives special consideration to the light and heat
conditions that occur in the interior of a motor vehicle.
The five different sets of conditions using the different optical filter systems specified can produce
different test results. Results from tests performed using different apparatus (instrument types) for the
same set of conditions and optical filter system are not comparable because comparable performance
has not been validated.

The methods described are based on the use of alight microscope (LM) or a scanning electronic microscope (SEM), on themeasurements of the fibre apparent diameter (preparation of longitudinal views)or on the measurements of fibre section area (preparation of cross views),depending on the section shape of the fibres. The given procedures apply tofibres in any textile form when mixtures of fibres cannot be separated by manualmethods or by chemical methods. Examples of mixtures of fibres are cashmere andwool, cotton and flax, flax and hemp.

The test method is not applicable to metal parts. The materials to which it is applicable are given in CEN/TR 16741:2015, Table 1.
NOTE In Europe, DMFu is prohibited in biocidal products as per Directive 98/8/EC. The substance must be used with caution to avoid any health problems in the chemistry laboratory. More recently, EU Commission Decision 2009/251/EC requires EU member states to ensure that products containing the biocide DMFu are not placed or made available on the market in the European Union. Decision 2009/251/EC establishes a maximum concentration of DMFu in products and parts of products of 0,1 mg/kg.
