A six station Colorfastness/Rubbing Tester used to determine crocking, color transfer, and abrasion resistance of leather, fabric, vinyl, stitched seams, plastics and other materials.
Each station is equipped with a removable rub head and set of table clamps to facilitate up to six unique specimens tested simultaneously.
Standard Rub Heads are 200g or 500g and come with spring clamps to attach specimens, crocking cloths, or abradants. Other rub head geometry and weight are available.
Each test arm is counterbalanced to ensure that the test is performed with only the prescribed weight required. Available test weights include 300g, 500g, and 800g and may be used with either standard rub head.
The 6-station bench-top Colorfastness/Rubbing Tester is used to determine crocking, color transfer, and abrasion resistance of leather, fabric, vinyl, stitched seams, plastics and other materials. Each station includes a pair of suitable clamps to fix the sample on the movable plate and force friction arm. This friction arm has two clamps for fixing the friction materials.
Load the required test stations, and lift the friction arm to the unused test stations. Set the counter to the desired number of cycles required by the standard, and star the test. The instrument automatically stops when reaching the specified number of cycles. Visually assess the test samples. This is a heavy-duty machine capable of operating with 1,800g on each station to meet some of the more rigorous industry specifications.
