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 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. It is not applicable to fabrics having a long pile or surface coating.

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.

Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester YG401B Description

  • With memory function when power interrupted, and can save the data when power interrupted;
  • Sports guide plate is made by aluminum alloy, and has after sandblasting oxidation process, beautiful and endurable;
  • Multi-working position, satisfies 4 specimens to be tested at the same time;
  • Stainless steel load piece, artistry and durable;
  • Pre-setting stop switch;
  • Bench top operation.


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 .

Related standards is as belows: GB/T 4802.2, GB/T 19089, FZ/T20020, ISO 5470, ISO 12945-2, ISO 12947-1, IWS TM196, IWS TM 112, JIS L1096, etc.
