ISO 8516 pdf download Textile glass — Textured yarns — Basis for a specification
This International Standard provides a basis for a specification applicable to textured yarns made from single or folded yarns of textile glass.
Textured glass yarns can be produced by several types of process. They can be made starting either from a single strand or from two or more strands in which one or more have been “opened” to give the “bulky” aspect of textured yarn.
Textured glass yarn is used in various applications, for example insulation, filtration, the manufacture of decorative textiles, the reinforcement of plastics and the manufacture of packing materials.

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in ISO 472 apply.
The designation of the yarn shall conform to ISO 2078.
5 Physical properties
Unless otherwise agreed, textured glass yarns shall be defined by the characteristics specified in 5.2 to 5.7,and nominal values and tolerances shall be given for these characteristics in the suppliers technicalspecification.
The criteria for acceptance or rejection of a batch, based on the results of testing, shall also be given in thesupplier’s specification.
5.2Type of glass
Various types of glass are used in the production of textured yarns. A list of available glass types is given inIso 2078.
The texturizing process requires the use of yarn covered with size to give suitable lubrication duringtexturization. This size can be eliminated after weaving by a heat-cleaning treatment, if necessary. The sizecontent shall be determined in accordance with ISO 1887.
5.4Average filament diameter
The average filament diameter shall be determined in accordance with lSO 1888.
The linear density shall be determined in accordance with ISO 1889,taking care，when taking the testspecimens,that the yarn is tensioned to a level suitable for staple-fibre yarns in order to ensure that thespecimens will be of the required length.
The moisture content shall be determined in accordance with ISO 3344.
