Crockmeter is used for testing the transference of color from the surface of one material to another by either wet or dry rubbing. B-Tex Engineering offers you precision engineered quality Crockmeter that too at best available price. Crockmeter is highly efficient and produces accurate results.
 
In addition to color transference tests, the Crockmeter performs scuffing, wet / dry abrasion, flexing, powdering, dry-cleaning, ink abrasiveness, and other tests. Test conditions are controlled and reproducible through the use of standard pressure and motion.

How Crockmeter Works?

  • Dry Rubbing:

•    Properly mount your specimen and test cloths. The counter has to be reset by moving the knob on the left side of the counter. The finger is positioned on the specimen at the base’s front end and handle is rotated in the clockwise direction at the rate of approximately 1 revolution per second. The handle is then rotated equal to the number of strokes specified by the test method.
•    When the desired number of strokes is reached, the crocking cloth is removed from the finger and its degree of staining has to be evaluated by SDC grey scale.

  • Wet Rubbing:

•    A fresh piece of crocking cloth is soaked in distilled water and the excess water is removed so that it contains its own mass of water.
•    The wet piece of the crocking cloth is fixed over the end of the finger of the Crockmeter and the test is undertaken.       
•    The dyed or printed fabric has to be mounted on a lower platform.
•    Then 10 cycles are rubbed with a white fabric, which is mounted on a peg in the upper rubbing arm.
•    Then the extent of color that rubs away onto the white fabric against a color transference scale has to be determined.
•    The rubbing action of the peg+ enabled fibers from the upper colored flannel fabric surface to be transferred onto the white backing fabric mounted on the lower platform.
•    The cloth is then removed to evaluate the discolor level in comparison with a gray-scale
