It is not surprising, therefore, to find that there are many different types of abrasion testing machines, abradants, testing conditions, testing procedures, methods of evaluation of abrasion resistance, and d415 of results. My go to reference on the subject is the Association for Contract Textiles.
Number of cycles determines abrasion rating.
Fabric samples are mounted flat and rubbed in a figure eight like motion using a c4157 of worsted wool cloth as the abradant. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the asmt of regulatory limitations prior to use.
All of the following issues should be included in any such assessment: The test results from the two laboratories should be compared using a statistical test for unpaired data, at a probability level chosen prior to the testing series.
Understanding Abrasion Testing
The resistance to abrasion is affected by many factors that include the inherent mechanical properties of the fibers; the dimensions of the fibers; the structure of the yarns; the construction of the fabrics; the type, kind, amount of treatment added to the fibers, yarns or fabric; the nature of the abradant; the tension on the specimen; the pressure between the specimen and the abradant; and the dimensional changes in the specimen.
A fabric with twice the number of abrasion cycles does not indicate double the service life. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
Within the text, the inch-pound units are shown in parentheses. Four options for evaluation are included: The test results from the two laboratories should be compared using a statistical test for unpaired data, at a probability level chosen prior to the testing series.
This is an oscillating test. In fact, Wyzenbeek results abovedouble rubs have not been shown to be an indicator of increased fabric lifespan. For survey details and additional research, read our White Papers.
In general, they should not be relied upon for prediction of actual wear-life in specific end uses unless there are data showing the specific relationship between laboratory abrasion tests and actual wear in the intended end-use. Option 4—Breaking Strength Loss. Four options for evaluation are included:. D44157 a bias is found, either a cause must be found and corrected, or future test results must be adjusted in consideration of the known bias.
The abradant must accordingly be changed at frequent intervals or checked periodically against a standard. Permanent abradants may also change due to pick up of finishing or other material from test fabrics and must accordingly adtm cleaned at frequent intervals.
Wire screen or wire mesh is used as an abradant when the test specimen is more abrasive than the cotton duck. This test can also increase the uniformity of the abrading action by washing away abrasion debris and preventing the build up of broken fibers that can d41557 with the proper progression of the tests.
Therefore, ACT does not recommend using absolute numbers for comparision. Experience has shown in many instances, asttm relative results obtained with this instrument when used on a series of fabrics, agreed with those obtained based upon performance in end use. There is no correlation between Wyzenbeek and Martindale results.
The relationship varies with different end uses, and different factors may be necessary in any calculation of predicted durability from specific abrasion data.
Martindale Test Video —. Collectively, these considerations will facilitate your selection of the most appropriate fabric for the project. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
As a minimum, the test samples should be used that are as sstm as possible, that are drawn from the material from which the disparate test results were obtained, and that are randomly assigned in equal numbers to each laboratory for testing. This test method may not be usable for some fabric constructions.
The resistance to abrasion is affected by many factors, such as the inherent mechanical properties of the fibers; the dimensions of the fibers; the structure of the yarns; the construction of the fabrics; and the type, kind, and amount of finishing material added to the fibers, yarns, or fabric.
Other procedures for measuring the abrasion resistance of textile fabrics are given in: With permanent abradants that use hardened metal or equivalent surfaces, it is assumed that the abradant will not change appreciably in a specific series of tests, but obviously similar abradants used in different laboratories will not likely change at the same rate due to differences in usage. Asym of all types including carpets, garments and nonwovens may be tested under this method.

Wyzenbeek — New Test Video View: Because there is a definite need for measuring the relative resistance to abrasion, awtm is one of the several standardized guides and methods that is useful to help minimize the inherent variation in results that may occur. The results obtained from the use of this instrument assist in evaluating these factors relative to the wear serviceability d1457 the final textile product in specific end uses.
If bias is found, either its cause must be found and corrected, or future test results must be adjusted in consideration of the known bias. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.

ASTM D – 08() Standard Guide for Abrasion Resistance of Textile Fabrics (Uniform Abrasion)
A Wyzenbeek c4157 is used for this test allowing samples of the test fabric to be pulled tight in a frame and held stationary. This test method provides a comparative measurement of the resistance of woven textile fabrics to abrasion, and may not necessarily predict the actual performance of fabrics in actual use.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Make sure to check a new post from the Association of Contract Textiles regarding acceptable abrasion standards. In an effort to bring further clarity to the appropriate consideration of double rub numbers, as of April 1,textile companies and furniture manufacturers that use the ACT certification mark for abrasion on their samples will now include the following statement whenever publishing test results in excess ofdouble rubs: Laboratory tests may be reliable as an indication of relative end-use performance in cases where the difference in abrasion resistance of various materials is large, but they should not be relied e4157 where differences in laboratory test findings are small.
For more information please refer to abrasion white papers on the ACT website. Other procedures for measuring the abrasion resistance of textile fabrics are given in: ACT reminds you that there are many points to consider when specifying textiles.
Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The number of cycles that the fabric can endure before fabric shows objectionable change in appearance yarn breaks, pilling, holes is counted. This explains the requirements for both residential and contract spaces.
