TESTEX Random Tumble Pilling Tester TF224
The Random Tumble Pilling Tester TF224 is a specialized piece of equipment used to evaluate the pilling resistance of fabrics. It works by subjecting the fabric specimen to a randomized tumbling motion with the aid of a unique rotating drum, which simulates the wear and tear the fabric may experience during regular use.
The tester comes with several standard test methods such as ISO12945-2, ASTM D4970, and others, which allows for standardized testing and comparison of results. During testing, the fabric sample is loaded into the drum along with a set of standard abrasives, and then subjected to a specified number of rotations. After the test is completed, the specimen is evaluated for the degree of pilling using a rating scale, which provides a quantitative measurement of the fabric’s pilling resistance.
The Random Tumble Pilling Tester TF224 is an essential tool for textile manufacturers and product designers who need to ensure that their products meet the necessary quality and performance standards. With its advanced technology and precise controls, this tester offers reliable and repeatable results, making it an indispensable tool for anyone involved in the production or testing of fabrics.
