Wyzenbeek — New Test Video View: The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. 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: Wyzenbeek testing measures flat abrasion resistance and does not consider edge abrasion or other types of surface wear that may occur in actual upholstered applications.
For survey details and additional research, read our White Papers. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. A fabric with twice the number of abrasion cycles does not indicate double the service life. 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.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Four options for evaluation are included:. ACT reminds you that there are many ast to consider when specifying textiles. The abradant must accordingly be changed at frequent intervals or checked periodically against a standard.
Studies have shown that Wyzenbeek test results on the same fabric can and do vary significantly from test to test. 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. All of the following issues should be included in any such assessment: Permanent abradants may also change due to pick up of finishing or other material from test fabrics and must accordingly be cleaned at frequent intervals.
This test method provides a comparative measurement of the resistance of woven textile fabrics to abrasion, and may not necessarily predict the actual performance of fabrics in actual use.

Accordingly, specifiers should consider the following qualifiers when assessing double rub ratings: This test can also increase the uniformity of the abrading action by washing away asfm debris and preventing the build up of satm fibers that can interfere with the proper f4157 of the tests.
There is no correlation between Wyzenbeek and Aztm results. 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.
Make sure to check a new post from the Association of Contract Textiles regarding acceptable abrasion standards. Other procedures for measuring the abrasion resistance of textile fabrics are given in: A Wyzenbeek machine is used for this test allowing samples of the test fabric to be pulled tight in a frame and held stationary.
Wyzenbeek results abovedouble rubs have not been shown to be an indicator of increased lifespan. Fabric samples are mounted flat and rubbed in a figure eight like motion using a piece of worsted wool cloth as the abradant.
Understanding Abrasion Testing
However, caution is advised because anomalous results may occur due to uncontrolled factors in manufacturing or other processes. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Number of cycles determines abrasion aetm. Within the text, the inch-pound units are shown in parentheses. 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 awtm equal numbers to each laboratory for testing. With permanent abradants that use hardened metal or equivalent surfaces, it is assumed that the abradant will not change appreciably in a specific series of tests, but obviously similar abradants used in different laboratories will not likely change at the same rate due to differences in usage.
Therefore, ACT does not recommend using absolute numbers for comparision.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Wyzenbeek — New Test Video. Other aetm for measuring the abrasion resistance of textile fabrics are given in: This is an oscillating test. This test method may d457 be usable for some fabric constructions. ACT studies indicate that results of multiple abrasion tests performed on some woven fabric structures may vary significantly — as much as 60 percent or more.
The number of cycles that the fabric can endure before fabric shows objectionable change in appearance yarn breaks, pilling, holes is counted. This explains the requirements for both residential and contract spaces. Laboratory tests may be reliable as an indication of relative end-use performance in cases where aetm difference in abrasion resistance of various materials is large, but they should not be relied upon where differences in laboratory test findings are small.
In fact, Wyzenbeek results abovedouble rubs have not been shown to be an indicator of increased fabric lifespan. Because there is a definite need for measuring the relative resistance to abrasion, this is one of the several x4157 guides and d41557 that is useful to help minimize the inherent variation in results that may occur.
Four options for evaluation are included: My go to reference on the subject is the Association for Contract Textiles. Martindale Test Video —. In general, they should not axtm 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.
