Felts - Wool and Part Wool

This SAE Standard identifies chemical/mechanical properties, thickness, width, mass, and other requirements recommended for felts (refer to Tables 1 and 2). It was developed with the cooperation of the Standardization Committee of the Felt Association, Inc., and in accordance with the ASTM tests indicated in the document. The commercial trade designations of the more commonly used grades of automotive felts are given along with complete specifications and tolerances for thickness, mass, wool content, chemical and physical requirements, color, and width. General information, recommended uses, etc., are published in Appendix A as a guide in the selection of felts for particular uses, but the requirements for each application should be taken into consideration in making final selections.

Fiberboard Crease Bending Test

This test method is designed to determine the suitability of a painted or unpainted fiberboard for application involving creasing and bending. The specific purpose of the test is to determine whether a given material, properly creased, can be bent along the impressed crease without objectionable failure on the surface of the bend.

Instrumental Color Difference Measurement for Exterior Finishes, Textiles and Colored Trim

The practice applies to parts and materials used in vehicle manufacture which are intended to be acceptable color matches to a specified color standard. This practice is intended for use with parts or materials that are opaque or nearly so and does not apply to transparent materials. Materials covered by this practice include topcoat paint finishes, interior soft trim, interior and exterior hard trim, and exterior film.

Instrumental Color Difference Measurements for Colorfastness of Automotive Interior Trim Materials

The practice described applies to textile and flexible plastic parts and materials used in automotive vehicles. Special care should be taken when high pile carpet samples are being evaluated. The intent of this SAE Recommended Practice is to specify procedures for the instrumental measurement of color differences brought about by the exposure of textile and flexible plastic automotive parts to various colorfastness tests. It may be used for the specification of limits of color differences which may be tolerated in a specific test.

Standard Classification System for Fiberboards

This SAE Standard provides a means for specifying or describing the pertinent properties of fiberboards for automotive applications. The materials normally specified by this standard are defined in SAE J947. The test methods commonly used for fiberboards are defined in SAE J315.

Test Method for Determining Blocking Resistance and Associated Characteristics of Automotive Trim Materials

This test method is designed to indicate the degree of surface tackiness, color transfer, loss of embossment, and surface marring when two trim materials are placed face to face under specific conditions of time, temperature, and pressure. These specific conditions are not dictated in this test procedure but will be found in the material standards which govern each type of trim material to be tested.
