ASTM D5732

Standard Test Method for Stiffness of Nonwoven Fabrics Using the Cantilever Test

WITHDRAWN - This test method covers stiffness properties of nonwoven fabrics by employing the principle of cantilever bending of the fabric under its own weight. Bending length is measured and flexural rigidity calculated. This test method applies to most nonwoven fabrics that are treated or untreated, including those heavily sized, coated, or resin-treated.
