for Adoption:

Standards Under
Systematic Review:
The Kenya Bureau of Standards intends to adopt the International Standards as detailed here below:
Textle and Leather - Towels, medical and hygienic textile products

ISO 9073-5
Title:Textiles-Test methods for nonwovens Part 5: Determination of resistance to mechanical penetration (ball burst procedure)
Scope: This part of ISO 9073 specifies a method for determining the resistance to mechanical penetration of nonwoven fabrics by a ball of a given diameter. The method is primarily designed to be used on nonwovens with some degree of elasticity, for which a regular burst test is not applicable.

The Closing date is in the next 13 Days on 2017-09-01

NOTE: Absence of any reply or comments shall be deemed to be an acceptance of the proposal for adoption and shall constitute an approval vote.

ISO 9073-7
Title:Textiles-Test methods for nonwovens Part 7: Determination of bending length
Scope: This part of IS0 9073 specifies a method for deter- mining the bending length of a nonwoven fabric. An equation is given for calculating the flexural rigidity of the fabric from the bending length. The method is not applicable to combination-type materials (composites or laminates) in which there can be a natural twist.

The Closing date is in the next 13 Days on 2017-09-01

NOTE: Absence of any reply or comments shall be deemed to be an acceptance of the proposal for adoption and shall constitute an approval vote.

ISO 9073-10
Title:Textiles-Test methods for nonwovens Part 10: Lint and other particles generation in the dry state
Scope: This part of ISO 9073 specifies a test method for measuring the linting of nonwovens in the dry state. It can also be applied to other textile materials.

The Closing date is in the next 13 Days on 2017-09-01

NOTE: Absence of any reply or comments shall be deemed to be an acceptance of the proposal for adoption and shall constitute an approval vote.
