Martindale pilling tester is used to test the meaning of fabric pilling resistance

Martindale Pilling TesterIt is used to test the meaning and usefulness of fabric anti-pilling: during the actual use of textiles, due to various wrinkles and wrinkles on the surface of the human body, Pilling will occur due to friction, etc. The importance of this experiment is to predict the situation of pilling before putting the product on the market, and then make reasonable improvements and avoid it.

This method is generally considered not very good in business. The accuracy of this method in commercial comparative tests is poor. This is due to the nature of the wear tester itself. Using the same tester regardless of whether internal or external comparative testing often produces different test results. Although this method is not recommended as a commercial test, it is widely used and preferred,especially in countries outside the United States.

If a dispute arises in business due to different test results, the buyer and seller should conduct some comparative tests to find out the differences between the two laboratories. It may be better to choose an authoritative institution for comparison. At the same time, the samples selected by the two parties must be consistent. The general practice is that the two parties use random samples to determine the overall level. Once a difference is found between the two parties, it must be corrected and reconciled as soon as possible, otherwise the reason for the difference in results must be explained to the other party.

The pilling performance of textiles is a very complex indicator, as it is influenced by many factors, including: fiber type and blends, fiber size, yarn and fabric structure, fabric na finish processing. The anti-pilling performance of fabrics is more complicated under actual wear than under normal conditions, and the actual wear of each consumer is more complicated than under the conditions specified in the laboratory. Experience should be taken into account in applying acceptable test criteria.

The change of the surface of the fabric and its post-processing will greatly affect the anti-pilling performance, so it is recommended to wash or dry clean the fabric before testing, and it can also be washed and dried. cleaned at the same time before the test. In this way, it is more sensible to process before the test, but both parties should negotiate the status of the test sample in advance before the test. 5-5 Pilling varies in size and appearance depending on the amount of lint and color contrast present. When it is only necessary to separate the pilling seriest, the above factors are generally no longer taken into account. The formation of pilling may be associated with other factors, such as surface hair, color change or surface pilling. Since the overall acceptable level of a given fabric is related to the characteristics of the pilling and other factors that determine the appearance of the surface, it is recommended to assess the acceptance level beyond a simple pilling assessment. According to the procedure of the surface change of the tested substance, a series of standards can be established for evaluation. When the laboratory test samples are relatively similar in appearance and have the same degree of pilling, it is more beneficial to use visual evaluation standards. The anti-pilling performance of the fabric is evaluated by counting the number of beads and evaluating the size and contrast of the beads. This method is not recommended because the extra takes time to calculate, measure and count.

 Fabric anti-pilling, can use the visual standard to compare with the test sample, the comparison needs the fabric before the test and the standard photo, to show the anti-pilling performance, generally use 1 up to 5 levels to evaluate anti-pilling.
This method is widely used in woven and knitted fabrics. The pilling performance is affected by the structure of fibers, yarns, fabrics and finishing methods. It has not yet been decided to use this method to determine non-woven fabrics.
