Martindale Abrasion Cum Pilling Tester is used to determine abrasion as well as pilling resistance of any type of Woven, non-woven, knitted and Coated fabric. The Martindale Abrasion Tester is designed to subject specimens under a controlled amount of rubbing at comparatively low pressures and in continuously changing directions to ensure that all surface fibers on the specimens are flexed in order to access the resistance of fabrics to abrasion. Under this test, the circular specimen of fabric are rubbed against a standard. Abradant, under a known pressure and the resistance to abrasion is determined by the number of rubs to break a yarn or by the loss in the mass of the specimens.
