Textiles - Tests for colour fastness - Part B10: Artificial weathering - Exposure to filtered xenon-arc radiation (ISO 105-B10:2011)
This part of ISO 105 specifes a procedure for exposing textiles to artifcial weathering in xenon-arc apparatus, including the action of liquid water and water vapour, in order to determine the weather resistance of the colour of textiles. The exposure is carried out in a test chamber with a fltered xenon-arc light source simulating solar spectral irradiance according to CIE 85:1989, Table 4. The method can be used either for determining the colour fastness or the ageing behaviour of the textile under test. The method is also applicable to white (bleached or optically brightened) textiles.
