Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester GT-C13


Product Introduction

Application of martindale tester:

The Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester is the standard method of determining the wear resistance of textiles or leather and the resistance to pilling. 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. Adaptable to test a wide range of applications including textiles, socks, leather, coated upholstery, carpets, wood and shirt collars. 

Four models are available, with 4, 6, 8 and 9 Abrading Tables respectively. 

Standards of martindale tester:
Abrasion: GB/T 21196.2, GB/T 13775, ISO 12947, ASTM D4966, IWS TM 112, M﹠S P19, Next 18, SN 198529, TWC 112, JIS L1096 ( ISO17076-2 ball plate method ,optional)
