I’m working on a government bid, but can only find one of the three fabrics I’ve been given spec numbers for. I can get CCC-C-419 from my usual suppliers, but no one’s heard of DOD-STD-00100D (AR) or ANSI Y14.5M-1982. Are those for fabric treatments to be used on the CCC-C-419 fabric?
It’s not surprising that your fabric suppliers have heard of one, but not the other two. CCC-C-419 is a specification for unbleached cotton duck, but the other specs you gave are not for fabric at all. Actually, they are specifications for engineered drawing practices. DOD-STD-00100D (AR) was the military standard, issued by the Department of Defense. However, it was canceled in the 1990s. ASME Y14.5 is the Tolerancing and Engineering Drawing Practices Package. It is written by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. ASME Y14.5 is available either through ASME or through ANSI, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
