The abrasion Martindale test machine can determine all textile structures’ abrasion and pilling resistance. Samples are rubbed against known abradants at low pressures and continuously changing directions, and the amount of abrasion or pilling is compared against standard parameters. The unique design of the Martindale tester allows the removal of individual sample holders for examination without lifting the top motion plate. Martindale tester provides individual counters and parking functions, interval time settable, large touch-screen display, standard sample holders, and 9 and 12kpa Weights are included. The Martindale abrasion tester is available with 4, 6, 8, or 9 test positions.
