Standard Test Method for Abrasion Resistance of Textile Fabrics (Martindale Abrasion Tester Method)
|Publication Date:||1 December 2004|
|ICS Code (Textile fabrics):||59.080.30|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the abrasion resistance of textile fabrics using the Martindale abrasion tester. Fabrics of all types may be tested by this method but difficulties may arise with fabrics with a pile depth greater than 0.08 in. (2 mm).
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard; the values in SI units are provided as information only.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
For other current test methods of testing the abrasion resistance of textiles refer to Test Methods D 3884, D 3885, D 3886, D 4157, D 4158, and AATCC Test Method 93.
