Product Description


SATRA TM 173 IULTCS Rubbing Color Fastness Tester for Leather and Textile





IULTCS Rubbing Fastness Tester, designed to carry out a rub fastness test on the surface of leather to determine the amount of ‘marring’ of the leather surface or the finish and to assess the amount of color transfer from the sample to the rubbing pad under dry or wet conditions.

Test Procedure

The sample is placed on the test surface and clamped; pre-tensioning can be effected by adjustment of the knob or screw in requested percentage. The felt pad is inserted in the end of the rubbing head and the tester switched on. The material surface and the rubbing pad are inspected visually. In the case of colour transferring, the wool-felt rubbing pad is evaluated using the grey scale.
