Textiles -- Physiological effects -- Measurement of thermal and water-vapour resistance under steady-state conditions (sweating guarded-hotplate test)
This standard has been revised by ISO 11092:2014
The methods of measurement specified apply to e.g. fabrics, films, coatings, foams and leather, including multilayer assemblies, for use in clothing, quilts, sleeping bags, upholstery and similar textile or textile-like products. Application is restricted to a maximum thermal resistance and water-vapour resistance which depend on the dimensions and construction of the apparatus used (e.g. 2 m^2 K/W and 700 m^2 Pa/W, respectively), for the minimum specifications of the equipment referred to.
