Textile test methods Textiles — Determination of formaldehyde — Part 1: Free and hydrolyzed formaldehyde (water extraction method) (ISO 14184-1:2011, IDT)
This part of ISO 14184 specifies a method for determining the amount of free formaldehyde and formaldehyde
extracted partly through hydrolysis by means of a water extraction method. The method can be applied to the
testing of textile samples in any form.
The procedure is intended for use in the range of free and hydrolysed formaldehyde on the fabric between
16 mg/kg and 3 500 mg/kg when determined by this method. The lower limit is 16 mg/kg. Below this limit, the
result is reported as “not detectable”.
A method for determination of released formaldehyde is given in ISO 14184-2.
