Universal Wear Tester TF213
Universal Wear Tester, to determine the wear and abrasion resistance of fabric used in clothing, footwear, and industries. This Wear Testing Machine complies with ASTM D3514/D3885/D3886, AATCC 119/120, etc.
Universal Wear Tester, a multiple functional testing device for determining the wear and abrasion resistance of various materials. It can test the abrasion resistance of fabrics, yarns, cords plastic films, rubber, leather, paper, and many other materials. The universal wear tester tests the abrasion properties of materials for flat, curved, edged, and folded edges, as well as resistance to abrasion, sealing, and pilling.
TESTEX universal wear tester supplies with surface abrasion head (inflated diaphragm method) and Flex abrasion head as well as necessary weights and blades. Accessories are available on request for conducting frosting, pilling, and edge abrasion tests.
Features of Universal Wear Tester
- Timer and mechanical cycle counter for different conditions of testing. The counter clearly records the cycle index of the sample when it breaks.
- Put different weights on the test head to provide a suitable load on test samples.

Universal wear tester (UWT for short, stoll universal wear tester) fitted with the built-in timer and mechanical cycle counter. Consistent motor speed provides 120 double strokes per minute with a stroke length of 25 mm (1 inch), which ensures the stability of the test instrument. The improved air injection system for more uniform inflation of the diaphragm used in surface abrasion testing, and a superior clamping mechanism for repeatable specimen tension.
The specimen and the abrasive are mounted on the fixture on the instrument, loaded with the specified load, and the specimen is tested with the specified stroke and speed, and the specimen is checked for wear after a certain number of tests, or the number of times when the specimen is worn out (worn through), in order to assess the abrasion resistance of the specimen and the surface pilling situation, and for the improvement of the fabric process for reference.

What is the Wear Resistance of Fabric
Wear is the phenomenon of damage that when the fabric does repeated friction with other objects during use, and wear is one of the main causes of fabric damage. Wear is mainly includes three kinds of grinding: flat grinding, curved grinding and edge grinding. Flat grinding is the reciprocating or rotating plane friction that the fabric is subjected to, such as the friction in the sleeves of clothes, the buttocks of trousers, the bottom of socks, etc. Curved grinding is the friction of a fabric in a bending state, such as the friction at the elbow or knee. Edge grinding mainly refers to the abrasion of the neckline, cuffs, trousers, etc.
Testing Principle of the Stoll Quartermaster Universal Wear Tester
Stoll quartermaster universal wear tester is mainly composed of control part and friction part. Install the sample on the fixture and tighten it. Put down the upper fixture with sand paper, adjust the position of weight to make the sand paper contact with the surface of the sample, and set the friction times of the sample by control system. Start the wear testing machine, test the friction, stop the instrument when the movement times reach the set value, and then take off the sample to observe the degree of wear.
Test Range of the Stoll Quartermaster
This instrument can be used for abrasion resistance tests such as flat grinding, curved grinding, edge grinding, resistance to frost, etc. It can be used in woven fabrics, knitted fabrics, coated fabrics, pile fabrics, socks, felt, nonwovens, deep fabrics, yarns, wire rope watch film, rubber, leather, paper, and many other materials.
Stoll Quartermaster Abrasion Tester can test the wear resistance of different products or different friction ways which caused the different methods of operation. We will provide you with more detailed manual if you purchase our products.
