Martindale Abrasion & Pilling Tester TF210

4.82 (22 reviews)

Martindale Abrasion & Pilling Tester, is 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 tester is also used to conduct the abrasion performance of medical protective clothing, to ensure the durability when used in medical scenarios.

Description

    There are various factors that affecting abrasion resistance measurement. Thus, you may need a pilling machine to test the wool abrasion resistance and abrasion resistance of test fabric. Let us introduce the Martindale rub test guide and help you to get Martindale abrasion test results.

    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 of abrasion.

    Test procedure:

    1. Test piece preparation

    In the standard environment, we put the test piece in the tiled state for a period of time according to different standard. For example, 24h (GB/T 4802.2), 16h(EN ISO 12947-4).

    1. Test piece selection

    The sample shall be cut from different parts of the whole fabric with representative. If it is a fancy fabric , the sample shall include all the different tissues and colors presented by the cloth.

    1. Taking down the additional loading weight and bearing axle.
    2. Taking down the top and clamp holder.
    3. Test placement

    Loosening the retaining ring of test clamp, we should put the test piece into the test clamp base. If the test piece is smaller than 500g/m2, we need to put a foam between the test piece and the metal clamp. Oppositely, it is big enough, or it is compound fabric, we don’t need the foam. Each piece held in test clamp should get the same tension.

    1. Placement of wool felt and abradant

    Putting the wool felt and abradant on the holder, and the weight for sample loading hammer on the abradant, and then tighten the nut in order to fasten the abradant on the holder by retaining rings.

    1. Pressing the abradant on the pressure head.
    2. Let the side of test clamp with test piece face down, and put it on the test clamp base. After that, the bearing axle should be adjusted until it aligns and inserts the circular groove of clamp.
    3. According to standard, we settle the number of times on the tester and turn on it. Won’t be stop itself until it achieves enough times in the measurement.
    4. Taking down the test piece and compare it with photographic standard.

      Q:What is working principle of Martindale Abrasion Tester?

      A:Two circular samples of same material rub mutually in a certain pressure along Lissajous curves. Then after reaching stated circles, pilling of test sample should be measured. Martindale test uses figure 2 among four types of Lissajous-Figure.

       

      Q: What is the pilling test procedure?

      A: Fabric, put on the clamp head, is rubbed against the same fabric placed on grinding table in a certain pressure. Rotating around axis, fabric moves in a pre-set Lissajous figure.

       

      Q:  Are there any special requirements for installation, or any chance a calibration will be needed afterwards?

      A: There are not any special requirements for installation, and we have professional after-sales team at your service.  We will arrange calibration before delivery, and afterwards, it will be needed once a year.

       

      Q: Do you have a user manual in English?

      A: Yes, the user manual in English will be sent with the machines, and the soft copy will be sent to you in email.

      1. Peter Hurley

        For abrasion and pilling assessment, the 9 workstation type really made my testing job simple

      2. James Smith

        Works well, no extra noise, instructions I should read someday, the instrument prompts you through the whole testing process

      3. Muriel Gray

        This product has everything i need in the kit and is affordable. Recommend!!

      4. Truman Louis

        I just used it for the first time. It worked. No pain, easy to operate. I would have given 5 starts already however today is my lab. first day of the use, so I will have to see how long it will last.
