This Standard specifies a method for determination of the resistance of chemically-pretreated textiles to the action of micro-organisms present in soil in comparison with untreated textiles. This method is applicable to flat textiles made of cellulosic containing yarns (tentage, tarpaulins, webbing and tapes) that will typically come into contact with soil during use. Due to the inherent resistance of most synthetic fibres to attack by micro-organisms, fabrics containing a high proportion of synthetic fibres can only be judged by these methods for changes in structure and appearance.
