The change in colour of exposed area of the test specimens and the light fastness standard fabrics is then examined and the relative degree of colour fastness of test specimens determined.

The frame is fitted on a steel stand so that it can be kept in open with the frame located at a convenient working height and tilted at 45º to the horizontal. The test specimen and light fastness standard fabrics are mounted on a specials mounting card designed to give specified coverings to them.
