DESCRIPTION

BS EN ISO 105-B04:2024


This standard BS EN ISO 105-B04:2024 Textiles. Tests for colour fastness is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 59.080.01 Textiles in general
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).
