Liquid permeability measurements are significant for fabrics used as fuel containers or vapor traps,
such as breather balloons. In a test, a specified amount of test liquid is placed in a cup or jar of specified
dimensions; the fabric sample is then placed over the cup or jar and sealed. After allowing the sample
to reach equilibrium, the cup or jar is weighed accurately and then inverted and allowed to stand for
a specified period, after which it is weighed again. Weight loss is calculated generally in fl oz/ft2/24 h.

pH Value

The pH value of a coating is useful to know in applications where the coating comes in contact
with metal parts. Normally, the coating should have a neutral pH. The test method uses the fabric
or coating cut into small pieces and placed in distilled water for 3 hours. The pH is then measured
with a standard meter. A reading of 7 represents neutrality; < 7 shows acidity; > 7 shows alkalinity
(Tables 10.24 and 10.25).
