ISO 105-E12

Textiles - Tests for colour fastness - Part E12: Colour fastness to milling: Alkaline milling

ISO 105-E12 specifies a method for determining the resistance of the colour of wool and part-wool textiles to the action of soap and sodium carbonate solutions used in alkaline milling (severe method) or of a soap solution only (mild method).

The mild method can be applied to light- or medium-weight wool (or wool-containing) clothing fabrics.
