How Martindale Abrasion cum Pilling Tester works?

The Abrasion of the fabric can be tested through two methods.

Number of rubs to end point:  


4 specimens of each sample can be tested in each of the specimen holder of the machine.

Inspect the specimens without removing them from the holders at regular intervals and note the number of rubs when at least two threads are broken.

This should be assessed independently for each specimen and the specimens removed when they reach end point.  


Average weight loss  


Abrade two specimens to end points as in above case and then abrade further pairs of specimens.

Weight all the specimens before and after abrasion and plot a graph of weight loss against the number of rubs.

Draw a line through the points and determine the rate of weight loss in mg per 1000 rubs if reasonably linear.


The degree of pill formation can be visually assessed by the set of photographic rating standards available for comparing the tested specimen.


The Martindale Abrasion cum Pilling Tester confirms with the international standards and comes under warranty. All this help provide customer satisfaction that promotes long term customer relationship which is our ultimate objective at B-Tex Engineering. 


Minimum 10 years part availability assurance from the date of Invoice.

Digital Pilling Tester

Digital Pilling Tester is used to check the pilling resistance of the fabric.
Digital Pilling Tester manufactured by B-Tex Engineering is of fine quality and gives optimum performance. Pilling is a fabric surface fault characterized by little pills of entangled fibres clinging to the surface. Pills are formed during wearing or washing by the entanglement of the loose fibres, which protrude from fabric surface. To determine the tendency to form pills, test specimens taken from the fabric sample are rubbed against each other under controlled conditions.


Features of Digital Pilling Tester:

  • Consists of two wooden cubical Boxes with inside surfaces lined with special standard cork sheet and outside surfaces beautifully laminated.
  • Consists of geared motor which rotates the boxes about their central axis
  • Pre-set Digital Counter stops the motor automatically after the desired number of revolutions
  • Can be used for all types of fabric and weave patterns.
  • Eliminates subjective assessment.
  • More accurate.
  • User friendly.
  • Adopted universal standard testing procedure.

Specifications of Digital Pilling Tester:


Size of Wooden Boxes (Inside): 235 x 235 x 235 mm
Thickness of Cork Lining: 3.2 mm (As per standards)
Speed of Rotation of Boxes: 30 r.p.m. for snagging & 60 r.p.m. for pilling
Size of Test Specimen: 12.5 ´12.5 cm² 
Size of Rubber Tubes: f 32mm (OD) x f 25mm(ID) x 140mm(L) (16 Tubes)
Motor: 1/8 H.P. Single Phase geared motor 220V AC
Counter: 5 DIGITS DIGITAL Pre-Set type counter
Overall Dimensions of the Unit: 813 (W) x 482 (D) x 508 mm (H)
Net weight : 35 kg (77 lbs.)  


How Digital Pilling Tester works?

  • The very first step is to clean the boxes thoroughly.
  • Then place four mounted test specimens in each box and close the boxes.
  • Later set the pre-set counter at 18000 with the help of the Thumb Wheel setting provided on the Digital Counter.
  • Press the start button. The machine would stop automatically after 18000 revolutions.
  • Now, finally take the specimens and compare them with the photographic rating standards.

Digital Pilling Tester from B-Tex Engineering is covered under warranty. All this help provide customer satisfaction that promotes long term customer relationship which is our ultimate objective at B-Tex Engineering.

Water Repellency Tester, Spray, Rain, Impact, Penetration

Water Repellency Tester, Spray, Rain, Impact, Penetration.



Water Repellency Tester measures the resistance of fabrics to wetting by water.  B-Tex Engineering offers you Water Repellency Tester which is of high quality and reliable.


Water Repellency Tester is used to check the water repellency of the fabric by spray test in textile testing laboratory. Suitable for Table cloth, tapestry, flooring material fabric manufacturer or processors.Water repellency test method is applicable to any textile fabric, which may or may not have been given a water-repellent finish. It is very necessary for a manufacturer to test the water repellency ability of the fabric.  This method is especially suited for measuring the water-repellent efficacy of finishes applied to fabrics.The water repellency ability of the fabric is tested with spray test. The Evaluation of the test is visual appreciation of the surface of the fabric (number of absorption points on the surface). It is very important to test the repellency of a garment worn in foul weather conditions. The more the repellency more comfortable the fabric will be during use. The repellency tends to decrease during washing, so a re-impregnation of a water repellent product is advised.  


Features of Water Repellency Tester:

  • The tester is suitable for measuring the water-repellent efficiency of finishes applied to fabrics, particularly plain woven fabrics.
  • Evaluation is accomplished by comparing the wetted pattern with pictures on a standard chart.

Specifications of Water Repellency Tester : Over all Dimensions of the Unit: 25cm x 30cm x 55cm


Water Repellency Tester Confirms with following international standards: AATCC 22, ISO 4920


How Water Repellency Tester Works?    Before testing is carried out the specimen shall be conditioned for at least 24hours in the standard atmosphere. Water sprayed against the taut surface of a test specimen under controlled conditions produces a wetted pattern whose size depends on the relative repellency of the fabric.

  • To carry out the test, first of all fasten the test specimens securely in the metal hoop of the water repellency tester so that it represents a smooth wrinkle free surface and place it face up on the tester.
  • Adjust the metal hoop so that the centre of the spray coincides with the centre of the metal hoop. Later pour 250 ml of distilled water at normal temperature into the funnel and spray the whole quantity on the test specimen for a period of 25 - 30 sec.
  • Now detach the metal hoop from the stand. Confirm whether water had penetrated to the back of the test specimen. With the face side of the test specimen down, hold the metal hoop by one edge and tap the opposite edge lightly once against the table.
  • Then rotate it 180°C and similarly tap again once on the point previously held to remove any excess water drop.
  • The final step is to compare the wetting of the test specimen with a photographic rating standard and grade it accordingly.
