Dyeing Rubbing Tester

This state-of-the-art dyeing rubbing tester allows the user to judge the color firmness of dyeing or printed materials. The abrasive hammer is wrapped with either a dry or wet white cotton cloth, thus allowing abrasion of the colored sample with certain loads and times. The sample is then compared with a gray-scale to judge the color firmness.

For colored fabric or leather and similar materials, test the dyeing-color firmness against abrasion. Use the standard white cotton cloth (dry or wet) to wrap the abrasion hammer and attach with a fix load weight. Set abrasion to a specific number of times smoothly to the colored specimen. Then take out the white cotton cloth to compare with the standard gray-scale and evaluate the level of color firmness or dying or printing of the material.
