Circular Locus Tester TF225
Circular Locus Tester, to determine surface deterioration and quality of fabrics (wool, chemical fiber, mixed, kitted and woven fabrics). Circular Locus Tester complies with GB/T 4802.1-2008, etc.
Circular Locus Tester, to determine surface deterioration and quality of fabrics (wool, chemical fiber, mixed, kitted and woven fabrics). Using an active friction system, fabric is rubbed against a nylon brush and abrasive or an abrasive only under controlled conditions. Results of the test are achieved in minutes. The relative motion of the locus specimen grip and the abrasive platform is a circle with a relative speed of 60+/-1 r/min. The grip offers pressure to the specimen which is adjustable with a tolerance of +/-1%. For added control and safety, the machine is equipped with a self-stop switch.

Q: What is circle pilling test method?
A: Fabric sample pilling with nylon brush at a track of circle motion under a certain pressure, then rubbed relatively with a standard fabric to pilling, or with a fabric abrasive to pilling directly. This test method is suitable for chemical fiber filament fabrics and chemical fiber short fabrics, but if fabrics are used as abrasives, it can apply to fabrics easy to pilling.
Q: According to which standard the TF225 machine is made? GB/T 4802.1-2008 only? Or can make according to ISO 12945 also ?
A: It’s based on GB/T 4802.1-2008 only. ISO 12945 is the other standard for Martindale abrasion tester TF210. They are two different test methods responding to two different machines.
