In this revision, the former 11 parts of FZ/T 01057-1999 were integrated into 9 parts
and the order of each part was adjusted. Namely, Part 5 "Staining Test Method" and
Part 11 "Systematic Identification Method" were deleted; the former Part 6 "Qualitative
Observation of Colour-production for Chloring and Nitrogen" was changed to Part 5;
the former Part 7 "Fibre Melting Point" was changed to Part 6; the former Part 9
"Density Gradient Column Method" was changed to Part 7; and the former Part 10
"Birefringence" was changed to Part 9.
The following changes were made to FZ/T 01057.3-1999.
1) The name was changed for "Test Method for Identification of Textile Fibers -
Part 3. Microscopy";

4) The morphological descriptions of longitudinal and cross sections of 18 kinds
Test Method for Identification of Textile Fibers –
Part 3. Microscopy
1 Scope
This part of FZ/T 01057 specifies a kind of test method for identification of textile fibres
- microscopy.
This part is applicable to the identification of various textile fibres.
2 Normative References
The following normative documents contain the provisions which, through reference in
this part of FZ/T 01057, constitute the provisions of this part. For dated reference, the
subsequent amendments (excluding corrigendum) or revisions of these publications
do not apply. However, the parties who enter into an agreement according to this part
are encouraged to study whether the latest editions of these documents are
applicable. For undated references, the latest edition of the normative document is
applicable to this part.
FZ/T 01057.1 Test Method for Identification of Textile Fibers - Part 1. General
3 Principle
The category of unknown fibre is identified by observing the longitudinal and cross
section morphology of unknown fibre with a microscope and comparing it to the
standard photo and morphological description of fiber.
4 Reagents
Absolute ethyl alcohol, glycerol, ethyl ether, liquid paraffin, collodion, paraffin section,
5 Instruments and Tools
Fiber slice cutter (or other similar device, rotary microtome), cutter blade, small rotary
microtome. Take a bundle of fibres; make them to straight and even by hand drawing;
place them in 80% ethyl alcohol for soaking for 2min; take them out; twist them for 2~3
times with fingers; then treat them in 90% ethyl alcohol, anhydrous ethanol, mixed
solution of ethyl ether and ethyl alcohol (1.1) and 3%~5% collodion solution in turn
with the same method; after the fibre bundle are air dried, embed them in paraffin. Glue the embedded and finished fiber wax block on the wood block. Clip one end of the wood block on the specimen fixing frame, turn the set
screw of wax block to tightly clamp the wax block and parallel to the slicing knife;
adjust the wax block until it close to the cutting edge. Calibrate the adjuster of the rotary microtome to the required slice thickness;
generally, 6μm~10μm are most appropriate for fibre slices. Waggle the hand wheel clockwise to move the wood block up and down and
cut out strip serial slices; take down slices with tweezers or writing brush and place
them in a black carton for use.
7.2.3 Cross section observation
Place the fibre cross section slice on the glass slide and add a drop of transparent
medium (pay attention not to bring gas bubble) and put on the cover glass, place the
glass slide on the stage of biological microscope and observe the morphology of the
fibres under 100 times~500times of magnification factor and then compare it with
standard photo or material.
8 Cross and Longitudinal Sections Morphological
Characteristics of Various Fibres
See Table B.1 in Appendix B for the cross and longitudinal sections characteristics of
various fibres; see Appendix C for the longitudinal and cross sections morphology
micrographs of various fibers.
