Language in which you want to receive the document.


This document specifies methods for screening the resistance of geotextile and geotextile-related products to liquids while not subjecting them to external mechanical stress.
It is applicable to all geotextiles and geotextile-related products. Method A applies particularly to polyamides and method B to polyesters and polyamides. The test results are intended to be interpreted in the context of site conditions.
This document is intended to be used in conjunction with ISO/TS 13434.
NOTE This document only considers conditions where the specimens are fully immersed in the liquids. Though outside the scope of this document, the test conditions can be modified to accommodate particular applications, e.g. gaseous media. This document does not preclude use for test specimens that are pre-treated by some method, e.g. by weathering, aqueous extraction conditions or installation damage.
