1 Scope
This Standard specifies the test methods for the color of leather to resist artificial light sources and heat.
This Standard applies to all kinds of leather that require light resistance and high temperature resistance.
2 Normative references
The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including any amendments) applies.
GB/T 250 Textiles - Tests for colour fastness - Grey scale for assessing change in colour
GB/T 730 Textiles - Tests for colour fastness - Quality control of blue wool reference materials 1 to 7
GB/T 6682 Water for analytical laboratory use - Specification and test
methods
GB/T 8432 Humidity test control for colour fastness to light
3 Principle
Under artificial light sources, expose the sample with blue wool reference materials according to the specified conditions. After the sample is exposed to the specified requirements, compare the sample with the blue wool reference materials used or grey scale to evaluate the color fastness to light discoloration. 4 Reference materials and equipment
4.1 Reference materials
4.2.1.2 Water-cooled xenon arc lamp light resistance testing machine
Water-cooled xenon arc lamp light resistance testing machine shall meet the following conditions.
a) Light filter. It includes inner and outer light filter glass to contain and guide the flow of cooling water. The filter is placed between the light source AND the sample and the blue wool reference materials, so that the ultraviolet spectrum and part of the infrared spectrum are steadily attenuated. Its transmittance is at least 90 % at 380 nm ~ 750 nm, and it drops to 0 at around 310 nm; or it is equipped with quartz inner filter and S-type silicon bromine outer filter;
b) It can automatically control the temperature and relative temperature; c) Cooling system. 3-level water circulation (complying with GB/T 6682) passes between the inner and outer light filter glass of the xenon lamp and it cools by a heat exchange device.
4.2.2 Temperature sensor
4.2.2.1 Black plate thermometer (BPT), including a metal plate with a size of at least 45 mm × 100 mm. The temperature is measured by a temperature
measuring device, and the thermal measurement point is located in the center of the metal plate. The side of the metal plate facing the light source is black, so that the reflectivity of the light reaching the sample on the blackboard is less than 5 %.
4.2.2.2 Black scale thermometer (BST), including a stainless steel plate with a size of about 70 mm × 30 mm, a thickness of about 0.5 mm. The temperature is measured by a temperature measuring device. The metal plate is fixed with a material plate for thermal insulation and is coated with a black coating, so at least 95 % absorption can be obtained even in the infrared spectral range. 4.2.2.3 Irradiance monitor. Since the irradiance of the sample surface changes as a function of the xenon lamp, light intensity and the distance from the xenon lamp to the sample, the consistency of exposure shall be controlled by the irradiance monitor.
5 Sample
5.1 The size of the sample shall meet the size of the sample holder that comes with the instrument. The size of the sample varies with the number of samples and the size and shape of the sample holder provided by the instrument. One sample holder can be used to test one sample or a set of samples.
evaluated against the blue wool reference materials.
8.1 Method 1
The basic feature of this method is to control the exposure cycle by checking the sample, so each sample needs to be equipped with a set of blue wool reference materials.
8.1.1 ARRANGE the sample and the blue wool reference materials in parallel, and PLACE the covering on the sample and the blue wool reference materials. The covering shall make the exposed part no less than 1/3 of the width of the sample holder and no more than 1/2 of the width of the sample holder.
8.1.2 EXPOSE under the xenon lamp according to the exposure conditions. 8.1.3 LIFT the covering from time to time, CHECK the lighting effect of the sample, until the color difference between the exposed and unexposed parts of the sample reaches the grey scale level 4, and EVALUATE the color fastness to light of the sample initially.
8.1.4 COVER the sample and the blue wool reference materials with another covering, continue to EXPOSE until the color difference between the exposed and unexposed parts of the sample is equal to the grey scale level 3, and EVALUATE the color fastness to light at this time. The covering shall completely cover the covering in 8.1.1, at the same time it shall make the second-stage exposure about 1/2 of the exposure width in 8.1.1.When the fade of the blue wool reference material 7 reaches the grey scale level 4 first, the exposure can be terminated.
8.2 Method 2
This method is suitable for testing a large number of samples at the same time. Its basic feature is to control the exposure cycle by checking the blue wool reference materials. It only requires a set of blue wool reference materials to test a batch of samples with different color fastness to light, to save blue wool reference materials.
8.2.1 ARRANGE the sample and blue wool reference materials in parallel. 8.2.2 COVER 1/5 ~ 1/4 of the total length of the sample and the blue wool reference materials with covering.
8.2.3 EXPOSE according to the exposure conditions, and LIFT the covering from time to time to check the lighting effect of the blue wool reference materials. 8.2.4 When it can be observed that the color change of the blue wool reference material 2 reaches the grey scale level 3, the color fastness to light of the This method is suitable for checking whether it meets the approved irradiation energy value. The sample can be exposed alone or together with the blue wool reference materials until the specified irradiation amount is reached.
9 Evaluation of color fastness to light
9.1 On the basis that the color difference between the exposed and unexposed parts of the sample is equal to the grey scale level 3, the final evaluation of the level of color fastness to light is made. On the basis that the color difference between the exposed and unexposed parts of the white leather reaches the grey scale level 4, the final evaluation of the level of color fastness to light is made.
9.2 REMOVE all coverings, the sample and the blue wool reference materials expose two or three segmented surfaces after the test, some of which have been exposed multiple times, together with at least one unexposed segmented surface, EVALUATE the color change of each segmented surface.
9.3 The color fastness to light of the sample is the number of the blue wool reference material showing similar color change (visual color difference between the exposed and unexposed parts of the sample). If the color change shown by the sample is closer to the intermediate level of two adjacent blue wool reference materials than to one of the two adjacent blue wool reference materials, an intermediate level shall be given, for example, level 3 ~ 4 or level 3.5.
9.4 If different evaluations are obtained on the color difference in different stages, the arithmetic mean value may be taken as the color fastness to light of the sample, which is expressed in the nearest half or full level. When the arithmetic mean of the level is 1/4 or 3/4, it shall take the adjacent higher half or one level.
9.5 In order to avoid wrong evaluation of color fastness to light due to photochromism, the sample shall be placed in a dark place before being
evaluated for color fastness to light, and it shall be kept at room temperature for 24 h.
9.6 If the color of the sample is easier to fade than the blue wool reference material 1, it is rated as level 1.
9.7 In Method 3 (8.3), the sample is exposed with the specified blue wool reference materials, and then the color change of the sample and the blue wool reference materials are compared and rated. If the color change of the sample is not greater than that of the specified blue wool reference materials, the color fastness to light is determined as “conforming”; if the color change of the sample
