Standard Performance Specification for Water-Resistant Rainwear and All-Purpose, Water-Repellent Coat Fabrics

2020-08-13 /Active

This performance specification covers rainwear and all-purpose water-repellent coat outer fabrics. Fabrics may compose of any textile fiber or mixture of textile fibers. This standard performance is not applicable for fabrics used for linings and interlinings. Fabrics for this purpose shall be tested and meet the following requirements: breaking strength, resistance to yarn slippage, tearing strength, bursting strength, dimensional change, colorfastness, water repellency, water resistance, fabric appearance, and flammability.

Significance and Use:

4.1 Fabrics intended for rainwear and all-purpose, water-repellent coat end use should meet all of the requirements listed in Table 1 of this specification.

(A) See Note 6.

4.2 It should be recognized that fabric can be produced utilizing an almost infinite number of combination of construction variables (for example, type of fibers, percentage of fibers, yarn twist, yarn number, warp and pick count, chemical and mechanical finishes). Additionally, fashion or aesthetics dictate that the ultimate consumer may find acceptable articles made from fabrics that do not conform to all of the requirements in Table 1.

4.2.1 Hence, no single performance specification can possibly apply to all the various fabrics that could be utilized for this end-use.

4.3 The uses and significance of particular properties and test methods are discussed in the appropriate sections of the specified test methods.


1.1 This performance specification covers rainwear and all-purpose water-repellent coat outer fabrics composed of any textile fiber or mixture of textile fibers.

1.2 This performance specification is not applicable to fabrics used for linings and interlinings.

1.3 These requirements apply to the length and width directions for those properties where fabric direction is pertinent.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
