Specific instances have been described. A Wyzenbeek machine is used for this test allowing samples of the test fabric to be pulled tight in a frame and held stationary.
As a minimum, the test samples should be used that are as homogenous as possible, that are drawn from the material from which the disparate test results were obtained, and that are randomly assigned in d44157 numbers to each laboratory for testing.
Whenever possible all materials that are to be compared with each other should be tested under the same pressure and tension. There is no correlation between Wyzenbeek and Martindale results.
ASTM D – 08() Standard Guide for Abrasion Resistance of Textile Fabrics (Uniform Abrasion)
Laboratory tests may be reliable as an indication of relative end-use performance in cases where the difference in abrasion resistance of various materials is large, but they should not be relied upon where differences in laboratory test findings are small.
The resistance to abrasion d1457 affected by many factors, such as the inherent mechanical properties of the fibers; the dimensions of the fibers; the structure of the yarns; the construction of the fabrics; and the type, kind, and amount of finishing material added asfm the fibers, yarns, or fabric.
For survey details and additional research, read our White Papers. Fabrics of all types including carpets, garments and nonwovens may be tested under this method. The abradant must accordingly be changed at frequent intervals or checked periodically against a standard. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Studies have shown that Wyzenbeek test results on the same ast can and do vary significantly from test to test. All of the following issues should be included in any such assessment: Number of cycles determines abrasion rating.
The relationship varies with different end uses, and different factors may be necessary in any calculation of predicted durability from specific abrasion data. Association of Contact Textiles Website.
Option 4—Breaking Strength Loss. Experience has shown in many instances, that relative results obtained with this instrument when used on a series of fabrics, agreed with those obtained based upon performance in end use. In an effort to bring further clarity to the appropriate consideration of double rub numbers, as of April 1,textile companies and furniture manufacturers that use the ACT certification mark for abrasion on their samples will now include the following statement whenever publishing test results in excess ofdouble rubs: The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.
Therefore, ACT does not recommend using absolute numbers for comparision. The test results from the two laboratories should be compared using a statistical test for unpaired data, at a probability level chosen prior to the testing series. The number of cycles asm the fabric can endure before fabric shows objectionable change in appearance yarn breaks, pilling, holes is counted.
If bias is found, either its cause must be found and corrected, or future test results must be adjusted in consideration of the known bias. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. If a bias is found, either a cause must be wstm and corrected, or future test results must be dd4157 in consideration of the known bias. Other procedures for measuring the abrasion resistance of textile fabrics are given in: For example, a predetermined number of abrasion cycles at specified test conditions may be performed on a series of specimens, which are then subjected to a strength or barrier performance test.
For more information please refer to abrasion white papers on the ACT website.
Other procedures for measuring the abrasion resistance of textile fabrics are given in: This test method may not be usable for some fabric constructions.
Make sure to check a new post from the Association of Contract Textiles regarding acceptable abrasion standards. It is not surprising, therefore, to find that there are many different types of abrasion testing machines, abradants, testing conditions, testing procedures, methods of evaluation of aetm resistance, and interpretation of results. With disposable abradants, the abradant is used only once or changed after limited use.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Accordingly, specifiers should consider the following qualifiers when assessing double rub ratings: Four options for evaluation are included:.

d157 Wyzenbeek results abovedouble rubs have not been shown to be an indicator of increased lifespan. This explains the requirements for both residential and contract spaces.
Within the text, the inch-pound units are awtm in parentheses. The results obtained from the use of this instrument assist in evaluating these factors relative to the wear serviceability of the final textile product in specific end uses. In fact, Wyzenbeek results abovedouble rubs have not been shown to be an indicator of increased fabric lifespan.
The measurement of the relative amount of abrasion may also be affected by the method of evaluation and may be influenced by the judgment of the operator. This is an oscillating test. Collectively, these considerations will facilitate your selection of the most appropriate fabric for the project. In general, they should not be relied upon for prediction of actual wear-life in specific end uses unless there are data showing the specific relationship between laboratory abrasion tests and actual wear in the intended end-use.
