" It is necessary to follow the analysis procedure described in the general part and to proceed as follows:

Add 100 ml of 75% strength sulphuric acid per gram of sample to the sample contained in a 200 ml conical flask with a stopper. The flask is closed, shaken vigorously and allowed to stand for 30 minutes at room temperature. Shake again, leave to stand for 30 minutes. Shake one last time and transfer the contents of the flask into the weighed glass filter crucible. Fibers which remain in the flask are rinsed with 75% strength sulfuric acid. The residue is washed out in the filter crucible in succession with 50 ml of dilute sulphuric acid, 50 ml of water and 50 ml of dilute ammonia. The fibres must remain in contact with the liquid for about 10 minutes before being sucked off. Finally, the mixture is washed with water, the fibres remaining in the water for 30 minutes. The residual liquid is removed under suction. The crucible and residue are dried, cooled and weighed.

In the case of binary mixtures of polyamide with polypropylene/polyamide bicomponent fibres, the residue in the filter crucible is twice in each case after transfer of the fibres into the weighed glass filter crucible and before use of the washing process described. with 50 ml of 75% sulphuric acid.
