Identify discoloration of fabrics or yarns due to the reaction of nitrogen oxides with yellowish carbolic acid.
1. Fold the test paper in half along its wide axis, and the folded size is 50 mm × 75 mm, which is consistent with the size of the sample.
2. Put the sample between the test papers, and place the sandwich structure (= material + test paper) between two glass sheets, (only 5 sandwich structures plus one for the control can be tested in this test. textile samples).
3. Wrap the package (= a fixed number of sandwich structures) tightly with a polyethylene plastic film containing 2,6-di-tert-butyl-4-nitrophenol in three layers and seal it with transparent glue.
4. Put the package into the sweat-resistant holder.
5. Place a weight of 45 Newtons (about 4.5 kg) on top of the sweat stand. Tighten the side screws to secure the weight of the weight to the material. Once secured, remove the additional weight
6. Place the sweat-resistant stand in an oven at 50°C ± 2°C for 16 hours.
7. After the required time, remove the package from the oven and cool to room temperature.
