1. Scope
1.1 This test method covers the determination of bow and skew of filling yarns in woven fabrics and the courses in knitted fabrics. 1.2 This test method can also be used to measure the bow and skew of printed geometric designs. 1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. 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 appro- priate safety, health, and environmental practices and deter- mine the applicability ofregulatory limitations prior to use. 1.5 This international standard was developed in accor- dance with internationally recognized principles on standard- ization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recom- mendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
4. Summary of Test Method
4.1 Bow—Astraightedge is placed across the fabric between two points at which a marked filling yarn, knitting course, designated printed line, or designated design meets the two selvages or edges. The greatest distance between the straight- edge and the marked filling line, knitting course, designated printed line, or designated design is measured parallel to the selvage. 4.2 Skew—The straight-line distortion of a marked filling yarn, knitting course, designated printed line, or designated design is measured from its normal perpendicular to the selvage or edge.
5. Significance and Use
5.1 This test method is considered satisfactory for accep- tance testing of commercial shipments. 5.1.1 If there are differences of practical significance be- tween reported test results for two laboratories (or more), comparative tests should be performed to determine if there is a statistical bias between them, using competent statistical assistance. As a minimum, the test samples to be used are as homogeneous as possible, are drawn from the material from which the disparate test results were obtained, and are ran- domly assigned in equal numbers to each laboratory for testing. Other fabrics with established test values may be used for this purpose. The test results from the two laboratories should be compared using a statistical test for unpaired data, at a probability level chosen prior to the testing series. If a bias is found, either its cause must be found and corrected, or future test results must be adjusted in consideration of the known bias. 5.2 Individual rolls are normally accepted or rejected on the basis ofthe maximum amount ofbow or skew in a specific roll of fabric. The average bow or skew in a roll or lot or the range of bow or skew in a roll may be determined but are not normally used in the trade for acceptance or rejection. 5.3 Bow or skew can be induced during fabric manufacturing, dyeing, tentering, finishing, or other operations where a potential exists for uneven distribution of tensions across the fabric width. Bow and skew are more visually displeasing in colored, patterned fabrics such as plaids and horizontal stripes rather than in solid colors because the contrast makes the distortion more prominent. These defects may cause sewing problems in such fabrics and draping problems in finished products. In some cases, a specified amount of skew is needed, for example, to prevent twisting of pant legs made of twill fabric. Matching plaids from distorted patterns may create serious problems for the garment manu- facturer or home sewer. Wavy or sharp breaks in the bow line are more detrimental to the appearance of small parts of a garment (such as collars, pockets, and so forth) than a gradual slope from a straight line.
