Martindale abrasion testing apparatus is an effective and reliable testing tool used to measure the abrasion resistance and durability of fabrics. This apparatus enables users to quickly assess fabric performance in terms of strength, wearability, resilience, and smoothness. It consists of a base made from aluminum or plastic with removable parts which can be fixed together or dissembled and then refixed according to the needs of the test being done.
The Martindale abrasion tester utilizes two main components to measure the fabric performance. The first component is the test head, which holds a rotating brush and abraders made from felt and leather that produces the mechanical abrading process. The second component is a cylindrical holder which contains an adjustable timer. This timer sets the duration of each individual abrading cycle that’s done by the rotating brush and can be set from 1-99 seconds. As these components work together, they produce consistent results with minimum discrepancies when done in an accurately controlled environment.
Why Do We Use Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester ? The Martindale abrasion and pilling tester is frequently used for testing fabrics and materials in many industries. It can easily evaluate the robustness of items such as car upholstery, outdoor furniture and clothing. By measuring the amount of abrasion present on the fabric’s surface, it’s easy to understand how it will perform in harsh or unfavorable conditions. By analyzing this data, manufacturers and designers can easily identify ideal fabric characteristics that are best suited for their desired product.
The Martindale abrasion tester is utilized for abrasion testing on textiles, including leathers and synthetic materials. Abrasion tests performed with this apparatus are typically used to measure the number of cycles needed to produce a visible change in surface appearance as well as the wear resistance of the material being tested. Sample specimens are cycled against an abrasive surface until a set number of cycles have been completed or a predefined degree of abrasion has been achieved.
