Testing

 

  • DURABILITY45,000 Martindale

     

    The Martindale method is the most widely used method for testing upholsteries for abrasion resistance. During testing the fabric is rubbed against a standard wool textile with a given weight-load applied. Running at intervals of 5.000 circular rubbing motions, the test continues until two threads are worn.

    Minimum requirements
    Private and low traffic public areas: 10.000 – 15.000 rubs
    High traffic private and office spaces: 15.000 – 25.000 rubs
    Public spaces and transportation: 25.000 – 45.000 rubs

  • FASTNESS TO RUBBING4 (Dry) 3-4 (Wet)

     

    The term for determining the resistance of the textile’s colour to rubbing off and staining other materials. A distinction is made between wet and dry rubbing. 

    It is evaluated on a scale from 5 (best) to 1 (worst).

  • FIRE TESTSBS 5852 crib 5 with treatment • BS 5852 part 1 • EN 1021-1/2 • US Cal. 117-2013 with Cal. 117 compliant interliner • IMO FTP Code 2010 Part 8.  

 There are differing requirements concerning the flame-retardancy of textiles dependent on the area of    application, country or even region. Our textiles pass the majority of international standards and are also tested for a selection of regional requirements.

  • PILLING4 (ISO 1-5),

 

 Pilling is the term used to indicate whether small balls of fibres, known as pills, form on the surface of the fabric due to   wear.  It is evaluated on a scale from 5 (best) to 1 (worst).

  • LIGHTFASTNESS4-6 (ISO 1-8),

Lightfastness relates to the ability of a textile to retain its colour under light. When testing for lightfastness, samples are exposed to artificial daylight for a specified period.

The evaluation scale ranges from 1 (worst) to 8 (best). An increase of one point corresponds to a doubling of the lightfastness, i.e. the same fading takes twice as long.
