Textiles - Method for assessing appearance of apparel and other textile end products after domestic washing and drying (ISO 15487:2018)

This document specifies a method of test for evaluating the appearance of apparel and other textile
end products after one or several domestic washing and drying treatments. The appearance evaluated
includes colour change, pilling, fuzzing, matting appearance of fabrics, smoothness appearance of
flat fabric and seams, and the retention of pressed-in creases in garments and other textile products,
damage of components – buttons, press fasteners, slide fasteners, etc.
This document is applicable to any washable textile end product of any fabric construction. Techniques
for seaming and creasing are not included since the purpose is to evaluate textile end products as
they are supplied from the manufacturer or as ready-to-use. Techniques for seaming and creasing are
controlled by fabric properties.
This method has been developed primarily for use with domestic washing machines of Type B as
defined in ISO 6330, but it can be used with any type of machine defined in ISO 6330.
It is recognized that prints and patterns can mask the wrinkled appearance present in textile end
products. The rating process is, however, based on the visual appearance of specimens including such
effects.

Textilien - Verfahren für die Bewertung des Aussehens von Bekleidung und anderen textilen Fertigerzeugnissen nach Haushaltswäsche und Trocknen (ISO 15487:2018)

Textiles - Méthode d'évaluation de l'aspect des vêtements et autres produits finis textiles après lavage et séchage domestiques (ISO 15487:2018)

Le présent document spécifie une méthode d'essai permettant d'évaluer l'aspect des articles d'habillement et autres produits textiles finis après un ou plusieurs lavages et séchages domestiques. L'aspect évalué comprend la dégradation des coloris, l'aspect des étoffes au boulochage, à l'ébouriffage et au moutonnement, l'aspect lisse des étoffes planes et des coutures, la conservation des plis permanents des vêtements et autres produits textiles finis, et l'endommagement des articles de mercerie tels que les boutons, les boutons-pression, les fermetures à glissière, etc.
Le présent document est applicable à n'importe quel produit textile fini lavable, quelle que soit la constitution de l'étoffe. Les techniques de couture et de plissage ne sont pas traitées étant donné que l'objet de la présente Norme internationale est l'évaluation des produits textiles finis tels qu'ils sont fournis par le fabricant, ou prêts à l'emploi. Les techniques de couture et de plissage sont maîtrisées en fonction des propriétés des étoffes.
La présente méthode a été élaborée pour être mise en œuvre principalement avec les machines à laver domestiques du type B telles que définies dans l'ISO 6330, mais elle peut être mise en œuvre avec tout type de machine à laver défini dans l'ISO 6330.
Il est reconnu que les impressions et les motifs peuvent masquer l'aspect froissé des produits textiles finis. Néanmoins, la méthode de cotation repose sur l'aspect, évalué à l'œil nu, d'éprouvettes présentant ces effets.

Tekstilije - Metoda za ocenjevanje videza oblačil in drugih tekstilnih končnih izdelkov po gospodinjskem pranju in sušenju (ISO 15487:2018)

Ta dokument določa metodo za ocenjevanje videza oblačil ter drugih tekstilnih končnih izdelkov po enem ali več gospodinjskih pranjih in sušenjih. Pri videzu se ocenjuje sprememba barve, kosmatenje, razvlaknjanje, matiranje videza vlaknine, videz gladkosti ploskih tkanin in šivov ter ohranitev vtisnjenih gub na oblačilih in drugih tekstilnih izdelkih, poškodbe sestavnih delov (gumbov, sponk, kaveljčkov ipd).
Ta dokument se uporablja za vse pralne tekstilne končne izdelke iz kakršne koli sestave tkanin. Tehnike šivanja in gubanja niso vključene, saj je namen oceniti tekstilne končne izdelke, kot so dobavljeni od proizvajalca ali pripravljeni za uporabo. Tehnike šivanja in gubanja določajo lastnosti tkanine.
Ta metoda je bila razvita predvsem za uporabo z gospodinjskimi pralnimi stroji tipa B, kot je določeno v standardu ISO 6330, uporabiti pa jo je mogoče za katero koli vrsto stroja, določeno v standardu ISO 6330.
Ugotovljeno je, da lahko natisi in vzorci zakrijejo naguban videz tekstilnih končnih izdelkov, vendar pa postopek ocenjevanja temelji na videzu primerkov, vključno s takimi učinki.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

For an explanation of the voluntary nature of standards, the meaning of ISO specific terms and

expressions related to conformity assessment, as well as information about ISO's adherence to the

World Trade Organization (WTO) principles in the Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) see www .iso

.org/iso/foreword .html.

This document was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 38, Textiles, Subcommittee SC 2, Cleansing,

finishing and water resistance tests.

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition (ISO 15487:2009), which has been technically

revised. The main changes compared to the previous edition are as follows:

— in Clause 1, the appearance assessment has been extended to colour change, pilling, fuzzing, matting

appearance of fabrics, damage of components (buttons, press fasteners, slide fasteners, etc.) and

physical garment changes (e.g. spirality);

— in Clause 3, the term “durable press” has been deleted and the succeeding terms have been

renumbered;

— in Clause 6, the distinction of preparation of different test specimens (fabrics, garments, etc.) have

been specified;

— in 7.4, the use of manikin for the garment assessment has been introduced, and a (non-exhaustive)

list of appearance changes (Table 1) for the qualitative method of the assessment has been added;

— procedures described in 7.5, 7.6, 7.7, 7.8, 7.9 and 7.10 have been modified and clarified;

— a new informative Annex B showing an example of appearance rating has been added;

— new references have been added in the Bibliography.

Any feedback or questions on this document should be directed to the user’s national standards body. A

Textiles — Method for assessing appearance of apparel
and other textile end products after domestic washing
and drying
1 Scope

This document specifies a method of test for evaluating the appearance of apparel and other textile

end products after one or several domestic washing and drying treatments. The appearance evaluated

includes colour change, pilling, fuzzing, matting appearance of fabrics, smoothness appearance of

flat fabric and seams, and the retention of pressed-in creases in garments and other textile products,

damage of components – buttons, press fasteners, slide fasteners, etc.

This document is applicable to any washable textile end product of any fabric construction. Techniques

for seaming and creasing are not included since the purpose is to evaluate textile end products as

they are supplied from the manufacturer or as ready-to-use. Techniques for seaming and creasing are

controlled by fabric properties.

This method has been developed primarily for use with domestic washing machines of Type B as

defined in ISO 6330, but it can be used with any type of machine defined in ISO 6330.

It is recognized that prints and patterns can mask the wrinkled appearance present in textile end

products. The rating process is, however, based on the visual appearance of specimens including such

effects.
