Tensile and bend tests of randomly-selected finished fibers shall be performed. Measurement of dimensions shall be performed and values should conform to permissible variations of length, nominal length, diameter, equivalent diameter, aspect ratio, and nominal aspect ratio. Guidelines for inspection, rejection, rehearing, certification, and packaging are also given.
