II. Appearance Quality Standard of 4 Points in the United States

1.Except for catastrophic defects (i.e., holes, which refer to three or more yarns broken in both the warp and weft directions), other defects are scored according to the following method:

Using 1 square yard as the calculation range, the maximum allowable score for each square yard is 4 points.

Defects with a maximum distance of less than 3 inches are deducted 1 point;

Defects with a maximum distance of 3 to 6 inches are deducted 2 points;

Defects with a maximum distance of 6 to 9 inches are deducted 3 points;

Defects with a maximum distance of more than 9 inches are deducted 4 points;

2.Damage defects with a length of less than 1 inch are deducted 2 points; those with a length of 1 inch or more are deducted 4 points.

3.Scoring formula:

Score * 3600 / width / length per yard = score per 100 square yards.

4.Acceptance standard: The score per 100 square yards should not exceed 28 points, which is considered as a qualified product.
