This document specifies a method intended for determining the effect on the colour of textiles of all kinds, except loose fibres, to the action of weather as determined by exposure to simulated weathering conditions in a test chamber equipped with a xenon arc lamp. This document focuses on textiles (such as apparel) where the main evaluation criterium is the colour fastness.
This method can be used to determine if a textile is sensitive to the combined effect of light and water.
NOTE 1        General information on colour fastness to light is given in Annex A.
NOTE 2        ISO 105-B10 provides guidance on testing textiles or technical textiles, which are permanently exposed to an outdoor environment and/or require mechanical testing (such as tensile strength determination).

This document establishes a system of graphic symbols, intended for use in the marking of textile articles, and for providing information on the most severe treatments that do not cause irreversible damage to the article during the textile care process, and specifies the use of these symbols in care labelling.
This document is applicable to all textile articles, except:
—     non-removable covers of upholstered furniture;
—     non-removable covers of mattresses;
—     carpets and rugs which require professional carpet cleaning.
These products are excluded due to specific cleaning processes not specified in this document.
The graphical symbols described in this document are intended to give care information to the end user.
The following domestic treatments are covered: washing, bleaching, drying and ironing. Professional textile care treatments in dry and wet cleaning, but excluding industrial laundering and professional carpet cleaning, are also covered. However, it is recognized that information imparted by the domestic symbols will also be of assistance to the professional cleaner and launderer.
NOTE            Symbols for industrial laundering can be found in ISO 30023.

This document defines the generic names used to designate the different categories of man-made fibres, based on a main polymer, currently manufactured on an industrial scale for textile and other purposes, together with the distinguishing attributes that characterize them. The term “man-made fibres” has been adopted for those fibres obtained by a manufacturing process, as distinct from materials which occur naturally in fibrous form.
This document gives recommendations of rules for the creation of the generic name (see Annex A).
NOTE      These rules have been introduced in the sixth edition of ISO 2076, and thus, they are not applicable to the existing generic names of the previous editions.

This document describes methods for the determination of compensation values for orthotropic coated fabrics (different properties along ideally perpendicular directions, such as the weft and warp yarns for woven based coated fabrics, or along the courses and wales of knitted based coated fabrics) for determining cutting patterns.
NOTE The final interpretation and the determination of the compensation values remains the responsibility of the project engineer.
Annex C describes a method to determine comparable measures of extensibility along ideally perpendicular directions of coated fabrics. The comparable measures of extensibility can be used by design engineers to assess the extensibility of a coated fabric by comparison with other coated fabrics. In this way, they can help to interpret results of compensation tests. Moreover, they can be used by material suppliers to measure the consistency of extensibility along perpendicular directions of a coated fabric from batch to batch.

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).
NOTE            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 the automatic determination of the deformability of textile fabrics, including continuous-fibre reinforcement textiles. This method is not applicable to resin impregnated fabrics.
The method is suitable for use with fabrics such as woven or knitted fabrics, nonwovens, non-crimp fabrics, fabrics made of glass rovings or untwisted carbon filament yarns intended for reinforced composite materials. When applying the method to multi-axial non-crimp fabrics, the evaluation of the fibre orientation and gaps only incorporates the uppermost layer.
The method can be used for fabrics treated with powder binder.
