Test methods for nonwovens — Part 10: Lint and other particles generation in the dry state


ISO 9073-10 Lint specifies a test method for measuring the linting of nonwovens in the dry state. It can also be applied to other textile materials.


This procedure describes a modified Gelbo Flex method in which the sample is subjected to a combined twisting and compression action in a test chamber. During the flexing, air is withdrawn from the chamber and particulates in the air stream are counted and classified in a particle counter. Depending on the choice of counter, the size ranges can fall within the limits of 0,3 µm or 0,5 µm to 25 µm.
