Rubbing Test Machines
Abrasion & Pilling Tester
Martindale is globally recognised as a definitive apparatus for determining the propensity of a substrate for pilling and the determination of resistance to abrasion.
It is the perfect choice for organisations practicing lean manufacturing, Six Sigma, 5S or other certifications where traceability and location are key requirements
Constructed from only the highest grade materials, Roaches Martindale is a robust unit built for accuracy and reliability. It is available with 4, 6, 8 and 9 test heads options for maximum versatility.
With a simple twisting action the clamping rings easily secure test materials into place.
It includes the new touch screen interface. This intuitive technology ensures minimal training for technicians and highly accurate process control. Simple programming for new test methods.
Colour Fastness To Rubbing
The Crocktec is a crockmeter which is used to determine colour fastness to rubbing (crocking). A crocking test shows the resistance of the colour of a textile and other materials to rubbing off and staining.
Colour fastness to Crocking (or rubbing) is a standard that even the most simple of quality expectations will require.
The Roaches Crocktec is available in both motorised and hand-operated models and they are designed to allow everybody (with the correct consumables) to be able to perform fabric crocking testing procedures.
Advanced materials allow almost frictionless movement at the crank pin and arm guide frame, whilst allowing totally lubricant-free operation.
If it is a requirement to perform high volume or extended tests then the Crocktec auto is the motorised version. Advanced engineering gives the Crocktec Auto exact action and motion every time.
