Martindale Abrasion Tester - QT-MAT1000

Meeting the standards of ASTM D4966, DIN 53863, and BS-3424

The Martindale Abrasion Tester - QT-MAT1000 is an ideal and advanced instrument to be used for determination of the abrasion resistance of textile fabrics. Fabrics of all types may be tested by this unit, including woven, non-woven, and knit apparel fabrics, household fabrics, industrial fabrics, and floor coverings, with fabric pile depth of less than 2mm.

The resistance of textile materials to abrasion as measured on a testing machine in the laboratory is generally only one of several factors contributing to wear performance or durability as experienced in the actual use of the material. While "abrasion resistance" and "durability" frequently are related, the relationship varies with different end uses, and different factors may be necessary in any calculation when trying to predict durability based on findings from specific abrasion tests.

How the test works:

Abrasion resistance is measured by subjecting the specimen to rubbing motion in the form of a geometric figure. Resistance to abrasion is evaluated by various means, including comparison to visual aids in the form of photographs or actual samples.
