4.75 (12 reviews)

Crockmeter – Manual AATCC Crockmeter TF410 or Electronic Crockmeter TF411, to test the color fastness of textiles to dry or wet rubbing. Also named rubbing fastness tester.

The manual or electronic Crockmeter complies with ISO 105×12/D02, AATCC 8/165 testing standard, and etc. In the crocking test, a reliable Crockmeter plays a vital role in the repeatable and reproducible results.



The Crockmeter, to determine the amount of color transferred from the surface of colored textile materials and other dyed materials to another surface by rubbing.

The Crockmeter equipped with an electronic counter, and handle is on the top to take it easy. A sandpaper is set under the test sample so that the sample is fixed during the test, makes the rubbing Color Fastness test repeatable.

Designed with a stable slide offers you even testing results, and the weight which produces 9N loading is changeable to alternative weights.

Electronic Crockmeter Fitted with a pre-determined electronic counter for strokes up to 999,999 times.

For fewer times rubbing fastness testing, you can also choose a manual crockmeter as an alternative to this motorized one.

Features of Crockmeter

·The precision slide rail ensures the linear movement of the friction rod and the friction finger, avoiding the uneven staining test result.

·Bigger size specimen brings even pressure on the sample, getting rid of the wrinkles when rubbing.

·Parts such as switches, buttons and counting meters are imported from the US and Japan, meet strict test standards, and have stable performance.

·Easy lift design makes it easy to change either Abradants or Specimens.

·The cover is shielded to prevent dust and other debris from falling into the instrument and prolonging the service life.

·Unique Handle design makes this crockmeter a real portable machine and friendly to female operators.


Different croking test method defines different testing abradants requirement, take AATCC Test Method 8 for example, A AATCC crocking cloth should meet the following specifications:

    Test Specification

    This method is used to measure the degree of color transfer from colored textile surfaces to other textile surfaces during friction. It applies to dyed fibers, printed fabrics or other colored yarns or fabrics. The dry and wet white cotton cloth was used as a friction medium.

    Sample Preparation

    Crocking Cloth: This is a white unbleached, undyed cotton lawn material

    Fabric to be Tested: The sample need not be cut to any specific size as long as an increased portion covers the metallic mounting plate.

    Two specimens are required for dry testing and two for wet testing.

    The two specimens for each must be such that one is assessed with the long direction parallel to the warp and another parallel to the weft. The wet test must be made with fresh dry samples and crocking cloths which have been wetted with water and squeezed to 100% take up (i.e. 10 grams of fabric is increased to 20 gm's of fabric plus water).

    Test Procedure

    1 Hang the Loading Piece on the Hang Pin. Mount one piece of crocking cloth onto the Rubbing Finger using the clip provided.

    2 Mount the specimen on the base plate. Press the button on the counter to clear the counter to zero. Start the test by shake the handle clockwise.

    3 Take out the white cotton cloth and compare it with the colored grey card or AATCC color card to evaluate the color degree of the white cotton cloth.

    Report Content

    Indicate whether dry or wet friction, write out the evaluation results. Write down whether to use a stained gray card or a colored card in the rating process and describe the treatment of the sample.

      Q: What is the difference between TF410 and TF411?

      A: TF411 Crockmeter is electronic mode, and TF410 Crockmeter is manual mode. The Electronic Crockmeter is more labor-saving to use and easy to use. If you want for fewer times rubbing fastness tests, you could choose Manual AATCC Crockmeter.
