Nonwovens - Test methods - Part 11: Nonwoven run-off


This test method measures the amount of test liquid (simulated urine) which runs down a nonwoven test specimen when a specified mass of test liquid is poured on the nonwoven test specimen superimposed on a standard absorbent medium and placed on an inclined plane. This test method is designed to compare run-off of nonwovens. It is not intended to simulate in use conditions for finished products. This present method has three options: a) Option A - basic method for testing hydrophilic nonwovens b) Option B - repeated test, with the same test parameters as the basic method with additional information in c) Option C - modified method for testing hydrophobic nonwovens specifying another degree of incline
