“This part of ISO 105 describes a method for carrying out quality control of production batches of the blue wool reference materials 1 to 7 which are to be used in the appropriate parts of ISO 105-B series of test methods for colour fastness to light. The method specifies one procedure for instrumental assessment of the evenness of dyeing and two procedures for assessing the fading characteristics of the reference materials, one of which uses visual assessment considered internationally to be the most widely employed. The characteristics of the reference material(s) under test then are compared with the characteristics of master reference material(s).The method is applicable to all dyed wool fabrics intended for use as reference materials 1 to 7 (see ISO 105-B01:1994, subclause 4.1.1). NOTES: 1 This method is not suitable for blue wool reference 8, since the time required to fade to grey scale 4 and grey scale 3 contrasts would be inordinately long. An alternative method is under consideration for application to blue wool reference 8. 2 The method given is based on ISO 105-B02, which is considered internationally to be the most widely employed method for testing colour fastness to light and to be representative of all methods where the use of blue wool references is specified.”
