Martindale Abrasion Cum Pilling Tester


Used to determine abrasion resistance as well pilling resistance of the knitted/ woven/ home furnishing/ coated fabrics.


  • Latest technology incorporating Martindale abrasion and pilling in a single machine.
  • Fabric sample is subjected to controlled amount of rubbing at low pressure and in continuously changing directions. this ensures all fibre in the specimen are abraded under uniform action.
  • Tested specimen is then compared with standards for rating.
  • Four samples can be tested simultaneously.
  • PU foam is provided as backing- as per standards.
  • Additional templates of 140mm and 38mm are supplied for sample preparation.
  • Standard felt and standard abradant wool fabric rubs against test specimen as per standards.
  • Pilling assessment is done in based on three parameters
  1. Rate of fibre production in the rubbed fibre sample.
  2. Rate of fibre entanglement
  3. Rate of fibre and pill wear out
  • Attachment is done against standard photography and rated from 0 to 5, zero being highest pills and 5 being least pills.
  • Emergency stop switch provided for immediate stop of machine without hindering testing.
