Digital Pilling Tester


Presto’s Digital Pilling Tester – ICI Type is intended to test the hairball or pilling characteristic of knit fabric clothes and other fabrics. Pilling is a material surface fault distinguished by little balls of entwined fibers sticking to the surface. Pilling is produced during washing or wearing, by the entanglement of the unfastened fibers.

Presto’s Digital Pilling Tester is used to measure the pilling resistance of the textile materials. The instrument is meant to measure the propensity of form pills, test samples taken from the fabric chafed against each other under restricted conditions. Digital Pilling Tester is of superior quality that provides most favorable performance. Replicating the conditions of knitted material which is laced, it gives the appearance of lint.

The machine is operated by rolling the test sample around a rubber tube and turning around a meandering box for a set duration of time. Then compare the sample with a standard picture to conclude its grade. For accurate test results, the user needs to take the average of four test of a single specimen.
