3. Test method

Preparation of the sample

Place it in a standard environment in a flat, unstretched state for 24 hours according to different standards.

Selection of samples

Cut a sample from different parts of the entire door fabric, the sample must be representative. If it is a luxury fabric, the sample must cover all the surface of the fabric. Other texture and color;

Remove load and load shaft from test machine;

Remove top plate and test rig;

Proof mountingpiece :

Loosen the fixing ring on the test fixture, remove the test pressure piece and place the sample in the base of the test fixture. When the substance to be tested does not exceed 500g/m2, between the sample and the sample A piece of polyester foam is placed between the metal plugs, if it exceeds 500g/m2, or if it is a composite fabric, foam is not required. The samples on each sample clamp must be subjected to the same tension.


Installation of wool felt and abrasive cloth:

Put the felt and abrasive on the grinding table, put the weight on the abrasive, then put the thrust washer on it, tighten the nut so that the thrust washer fixes the abrasive on the grinding table .

Place the grinding head on the abrasive and apply pressure;

Place the test fixture with the sample down on the base mount adjusting The round groove of the test fixture is aligned with the load axis , so that the load shaft is in the round grooveof the test fixture;

According to the default set times, the switch starts, starts the test and reaches the set times. Then it automatically stops:

Take down the sample and compare it with the standard photo in the rating box


4. Test Results

Fluffing Evaluation of the pilling level: Under the standard light source, compare the assessment with the standard photo, that is, have multiple sorters compare and analyze the sample with the standard photo in the assessment box and use the result as the pilling level of the example photo method. Five numbers are used, 1-5 respectively, and the smaller the degree, the more serious the pilling, otherwise the anti-pilling performance is better.
