TESTEX Rotary Crockmeter TF412
The Rotary Crockmeter is a versatile tool used to assess material damage and surface color transfer resulting from dry or wet abrasion. It’s commonly used to determine the color fastness of textiles, as well as shoe upper materials such as leather, plastic, and textiles. The machine can also evaluate the fastness of printed lettering on the surface of shoes to rubbing.
During the test, a round wool felt (dry or wet) is pressed against the sample with a fixed weight, and the wool felt is rotated to rub the sample. After a predetermined number of rubbings, the extent of discoloration on the samples is measured against a standard gray card. This reliable method offers accurate and consistent results.Request a Quote
Application of Rotary Crock Meter TF412
A Rotary Crockmeter is a specialized testing device used to determine the color fastness of textiles, including leather, plastic, and textile or printer fabrics. Specifically designed to test fabric crocking, this machine operates via rotary movement.
The testing head of the Rotary Crockmeter applies 1134 grams of pressure and rotates 1.125 turns in both clockwise and anti-clockwise directions. As one of the most widely used friction testers in the industry, it has become an essential tool for conducting crocking tests.
