ASTM D 1578 (D-1578) determines the breaking strength of yarn in skein form. The observed breaking strength is expressed in units of force, and equations are provided to convert breaking strength to skein breaking tenacity and to skein break factor. Note 1 For the determination of the breaking strength and elongation of yarn by the single strand method, refer to Test Method D 2256.
