Oil resistance of textiles

This test is used to give indication about textile's oil stain resistance, more specifically its resistance to wetting by hydrocarbons. In this test a series of selected liquid hydrocarbons with different surface tensions are used and the result is given as a numerical value, high values indicating better oil resistance. The method is not intended to give absolute values for the oil resistance, but to give comparable results to other materials or surface finishes.
