     specifications:

  (a). Length of tow exceeding 2 m (2.187 yds.);

  (b). Twist less than 5 turns per meter (1.093 yds.);

  (c). Measuring per filament less than 67 decitex (2.161 oz./10,000 yds.);

  (d). Synthetic filament tow only:  the tow must be drawn, that is to say, be incapable
        of being stretched by more than 100 percent of its length; and

  (e). Total measurement of tow more than 20,000 decitex (645.098 oz./10,000 yds.).
