What is "Proof" - Definition & Explanation
Resistant to a specified agency either by reason of the physical structure or the chemical non-reactivity of the textile, or arising from a treatment designed to impart the desired characteristics.
a) Proofing treatments should be defined by specified limits ascertained by tests, and the use of the term should be related to the limiting conditions.
b) The indiscriminate use of this term is deprecated, and its substitution by words such as "resistant", "retardant" or "repellent" in the appropriate context is recommended."
