Universal Textile Abrasion Tester



Reference standard

JIS L-1096、ASTM D3885、D3886、

Use/Good point

Accurate data of abrasion test of various materials, such as woven and knitted textiles, carpet, hosiery, felt paper, leather cloth, sheet and film, shall be obtained. By combining respective attachments, three types of test, of flat surface abrasion, bending abrasion and edge abrasion, may be executed.
・Method A-1 (Flat Surface Abrasion)
Abrasion a test specimen in varied directions with an abrasion paper, and count the number of abrasion times needed before the paper breaks the specimen.
・Method A-2 (Bending Abrasion)
Hold a specimen and attach it to the tester astride the flexing bar. Apply the tension and pressure load while giving reciprocating abrasions over the length of 2.5 ㎝. Count the number of abrasions needed before the specimen is broken.
