Martindale Abrasion And Pilling Tester
Martindale Abrasion & Pilling Tester. To determine the abrasion and pilling resistance of all kinds of textile structures. Samples are rubbed against known abrasives at low pressures and in continuously changing directions. The amount of abrasion or pilling is compared against standard parameters.
The unique design of our Martindale abrasion tester allows removal of individual sample holders for examination without lifting the top motion plate. It provides individual counters and parking function, interval time settable and a large touch-screen display. Standard sample holders and 9 and 12kpa Weights are included.
The Martindale abrasion tester is available with 4, 6, 8 or 9 test positions.
Martindale abrasion tester working principle:
Test piece of fabric is placed in the specimen clamp, and it will be rubbed against with abradant in a Lissajous figure. According to the requirement, once the test piece is broken, test piece should be taken down to calculate its abrasion resistance index, or evaluate its rating of pilling through the visual description.

The instrument is professionally designed to determine the abrasion and pilling resistance of all kinds of textile structures.
Samples are rubbed against known abradents at low pressures and in continuously changing directions and the amount of abrasion or pilling is compared against standard parameters.
Provided with Touch Screen Controller and unique programming device which includes preprogammable batch and totaliser counters, individual station counters, 4 selectable test speeds with liquid crystal display.
