Martindale Abrasion cum Pilling Testers Digital Model

Presto’s Martindale Abrasion cum Pilling Tester is used to ensure the abrasion as well as pilling resistance of the fabric. The testing instrument is widely used in textile industries. The machine is designed to subject sample under test to a controlled amount of chafing at relatively low pressure and in continuously varying directions to ensure that all surface fibres on the test sample are bound to compare the resistance of fabrics to abrasion.

The instrument is used to gauge the pilling resistance as well as adhesion of the fabric. The machine is used to produce a controlled amount of rubbing at very low temperature and from various directions to ensure that the specimen is bound to compare the resistance from all the ends.

Martindale Abrasion cum Pilling Tester is a highly accurate and high-quality tester. It consists of four plates on which fabric specimen is attached; these plates are mounted on the base plate. The machine is equipped with three cranks, a motor, and pegs. These accessories help to rotate the revolving plate, duly affixed to the machine. The revolving plate has four sleeves on it. The sample holders for pilling or abrasion testing are there on the machine. To perform the test, the proper pressure is exerted on the test samples with the help of predetermined weights.
