Fed 191A - Method 5651

Federal Standard for Textile Test Methods

This method is intended for determining the resistance of cloth to crocking. Crocking in this case refers to the transfer matter from one cloth to another cloth with which it may come in woven or knitted of coloring contact. This method is applicable to cloth of all fibers whether dyed, printed, impregnated, or otherwise colored. The method is particularly applicable to cloth of solid color, although variegated cloth may be tested if the colored area is of sufficient size. The method also includes provisions for testing the crocking of white or light functionally finished cloths against dark colored cloth when required by the cloth specification. Wet and dry crocking may be determined by this method.  Unless otherwise specified in the procurement document, both wet and dry crocking are considered in rating the resistance to crocking as determined by this method.

Resistance to Marring and Scuffing

OBSOLETE: This procedure is used to determine the ability of a surface to resist scuffing or marring.

General Motors GMW14130

Resistance to Marring or Scuffing

The purpose of this procedure is to determine the ability of a surface to resist scuffing or marring. Scuffing is defined as permanent damage to the coating. An example of scuffing would be a break in the topcoat with visible flakes of coating caused by scraping by the paperclip. Marring is defined as no break or penetration of the coating, only visible trenching or marking detectable. The marring may or may not be permanent. An example of marring would be a furrow created by the paperclip that does not break or permanently disturb the coating.
