Oil repellency of textiles + hydrocarbon resistance test

This test is used to indicate the textile's oil stain resistance, more specifically its resistance to wetting by hydrocarbons.

A series of selected liquid hydrocarbons with different surface tensions are used, and the results are given as numerical values with high values indicating better oil resistance. The method is often used to compare the oil resistance of different fabrics or surface finishes.
