This machine is ideal for determining the abrasion resistance of all types of fabrics and leather used for footwear, upholstery, clothing, gloves and many other products. The Martindale is the internationally-accepted test standard for wear of fabrics and it is also used for determining the susceptibility of fabrics to pilling.
The STM 633 can also be used for testing the abrasion resistance of rubber gloves, plastic and rubber coated fabrics by substituting the standard abradant with a grit paper.
The machine can be used for soiling tests for light coloured materials. A specially inked fabric replaces the standard abradant for this test.
An initial amount of the standard abrasive fabric is supplied with the machine.
