D06M TREATMENT, NOT PROVIDED FOR ELSEWHERE IN CLASS D06, OF FIBRES, THREADS, YARNS, FABRICS, FEATHERS, OR FIBROUS GOODS MADE FROM SUCH MATERIALS (surface treatment of fibres or filaments from glass, minerals or slags C03C 25/00; treatment of textiles by mechanical means, see D06B - D06J).
Notes[n] D06M:
  • In each of the groups D06M 11/00 - D06M 15/00, in the absence of an indication to the contrary, a substance is classified in the last appropriate place.
  • In this subclass:
    • Within each one of main groups D06M 11/00 - D06M 15/00, a mixture of substances is classified at least according to the essential ingredient. If more than one ingredient is essential, the mixture is classified, in the absence of an indication to the contrary, according to the essential ingredient which belongs to the last appropriate place in the sequence of substance.
    • Treatment by mixtures of substances covered by two or more of main groups D06M 11/00 - D06M 15/00 is classified in each appropriate main group.
  • In this subclass, the treatment of textiles, not provided for elsewhere in class D06, is classified according to the following principles:
    • Treatment of textiles characterised by the treating agent in groups D06M 11/00 - D06M 16/00 .
    • Treatment of textiles characterised by the process in group D06M 23/00 .
  • Attention is drawn to Note (3) after the title of section C, which Note indicates to which version of the periodic table of chemical elements the IPC refers.
