BIS CERTIFICATION FOR SYNTHETIC MICRO FIBRES IS 16481: 2022

Product Description

IS 16481:2022 covers Synthetic Micro-Fibres. The Bureau of Indian Standards adopted this Indian standard after the textile division council approved the draft finalized by the technical textiles for Build tech sectional committee.

BIS CERTIFICATION FOR SYNTHETIC MICRO FIBRES IS 16481: 2022

INTRODUCTION

Synthetic microfibers are ultra-fine man-made strands. These fibers are often made of synthetic polymers such as polyester, polyamide (nylon), or polypropylene, and they find use in a variety of sectors due to their distinctive properties.

These microfibers are extremely strong and long-lasting. Synthetic microfibers are used in fabrics and garments to provide soft, breathable textiles with moisture-wicking properties. They also play an important role in the production of sportswear, activewear, and undergarments.

To ensure the product quality of synthetic micro-fibres, the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has made it mandatory for manufacturers to undergo BIS registration and obtain the BIS ISI mark before selling it in the market. Manufacturers can use the ISI Mark on their products only after obtaining a license from BIS that is granted after BIS registration. The presence of the ISI mark on a product indicates that it complies with BIS's stringent quality standards.

IS 16481:2022 covers Synthetic Micro-Fibres. The Bureau of Indian Standards adopted this Indian standard after the textile division council approved the draft finalized by the technical textiles for Build tech sectional committee.

This standard specifies the physical, application, and functional requirements for synthetic microfibers such as polyester, nylon, and polypropylene fibres, etc. for use in cement-based matrices for secondary reinforcement in construction works such as concrete roads and pavements, industrial and commercial floorings, residential and commercial buildings, bridges and elevated structures, water retaining structures and dams, ports and undersea concrete structures, plaster, shortcrete, etc.

This standard primarily addresses the requirements for synthetic fibres used for secondary reinforcement of concrete, such as polyester, polypropylene, and nylon. The synthetic fibres used for secondary reinforcement in concrete must meet the requirements specified in clause 4 of this standard, as well as the physical, application, and functional requirements specified in the standard.

Only virgin synthetic fibres with cut lengths ranging from 6mm to 25mm that are inert to the concrete environment may be used as secondary reinforcement in cement-based matrices; no recycled material is permitted. Fibers must be well dispersed in a cement-based matrix to achieve uniform functional properties.
