5.0 (1 review)

Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester, also named Textile Martindale Abrasion Tester, it is used to assess abrasion resistance of woven fabrics.

Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester YG401B Description

YG401B Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester is used to determine the abrasion resistance of wool and wool blends woven fabrics, knitted fabrics and nonwovens under certain pressures. Also used for pilling property test of most fabrics (especially woolen woven fabrics) under low pressure. It was designed to give a controlled amount of multi-directional abrasion, between the fabric surface and a crossbred wool abrading fabric, at comparatively low pressure until thread breakdown, or unacceptable change in color or appearance occurs.

FYI is a leading supplier and export of Martindale Abrasion Tester which supply best solution for fabric testing .

Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester is refers to the martindale method based on standard and its relationship to test the textile products, and through the experiment to test the wear-resisting properties of fabric, and the wear-resisting performance is the important of textile product quality, which directly affect the durability of the product and use effect, wear-resisting refers to fabric or with other substances in the process of rubbing, abrasion resistance properties.

Related standards is as belows: GB/T 21196.1, GB/T 19089,ISO 12947-1, ISO 5470-2, ISO 17704,ASTM D4966, BS 3424-24 (Method 27A),EN 388, IWS TM 112, JIS L1096,BS 5690 (Superseded by BS EN ISO 12947-1),SATRA TM31 (Method A, B),GB/T 4802.2, ISO 12945-2,ASTM D4970, IWS TM 196.

Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester is suitable for testing the wear resistance and pilling degree of knitted fabric, woolen fabric, artificial leather and synthetic leather, etc.

This instrument has two kinds of Lissa-jous movement  track, which are used for determining properties of abrasion resistance and pilling separately.

  • Adopts microcomputer of touch screen control system;
  • With memory function when power interrupted, andcan save the data when power interrupted;
  • Sport guide plate is made of aluminum alloy, beautiful and endurable;
  • Rail is made of stainless steel, easy to unload and without mechanical failure;
  • Multi-working position, satisfies 4, 6, 8 or 9 specimens to be tested at the same time;
  • Stainless steel load piece, artistry and durable;
  • Two counting methods, counting up and counting down.


Application of Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester

Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester is applied to determine the pilling and abrasion resistance properties of most of textile (including woven fabric, knitting, nonwoven fabric, ramie, silk etc.) with bearing slight press. The relative movement track of specimen and abrasion is Lissa-jous figure. Circular fabric sample under certain pressure with standard abrasive according to Li Sha as (Lissajous) and track curve of friction .This will cause the sample damaged. The wear resistance of the sample is think as the abrasion resistance of the fabric .
