The SnagPod is offered as an additional test chamber for a HEAL’S ICI Pilling Tester or a later generation Orbitor. The SnagPod, octagonal in shape, incorporates 4 snagging bars, fitted with pins, inclined forward with the direction of rotation. The Pod rotates at 60rpm. The test duration is 2000 revolutions and takes 30 minutes to complete. Four specimens are tested simultaneously.
Introducing a family of color matching systems designed to deliver every option and feature you need to evaluate and communicate color with absolute confidence. The three standard sizes of the CMB will accommodate nearly any sample size (and if not, larger custom sizes are available). Multiple light sources provide an essential tool for visual color assessment, comparison of color variation, and detection of metamerism (when color samples appear to match under one illumination condition but distinctly change when viewed under a different illumination condition). All GTI color matching booths are supplied with a certificate of product conformance (NIST traceable).
This is a simple, predictive test typically used to assess the potential of white or pastel colored materials to yellow due to the migration of oxides. This test is specific to phenolic yellowing. Complies to AATCC, ISO, M&S, and TESCO.
The Spray Test is a simple method to determine the resistance of any fabric, which may or may not have been given a water-resistant or water-repellent finish, to surface wetting by water.
Used to determine the stability of fabrics and garments to washing and to investigate the effects of detergents and chemicals.
Used to determine the resistance of different metals to corrosion. Complies to ASTM and other standards.
This instrument is used todetermine the coefficient of static friction of most materials by measuring the angle at which one test surface begins to slide against another inclined surface as the incline is increased at a constant and prescribed rate.
The TEXTEST L 5700 Package Hardness Meter DUROMETER is used for fast and convenient determination of the hardness of paper rolls, plastic rolls, warper beams, yarn cheeses, fabric packages, and many more. Due to its unmatched measuring accuracy the instrument is perfectly suited for package hardness tests in warping, spinning, winding and dyeing. Since at a given geometry the package hardness correlates very well with the package density the instrument is also well suited for determination of this important parameter.
The TEXTEST FX 3750 Digital Elmendorf Tearing Tester is a microprocessor controlled falling pendulum Instrument with digital display for determination of the average force required to propagate a single-rip tongue-type tear starting from a cut in paper, cardboard, plastics, non-wovens and woven fabrics.
HEAL’S Elmatear simplifies and accelerates routine tear testing. The operator selects the unit of measurement and the number of plies – the test result is displayed digitally – no calculations are required. The intelligent design diminishes the scope for operator error to ensure accurate and repeatable results. Cumbersome pendulums have been replaced with easy-to-change, manageable pendulum weights.
The TEXTEST FX 3000 Automatic Hydrostatic Head Tester HYDROTESTER is used for fast, accurate and automatic determination of the resistance of plastic foils, coated and uncoated fabrics, and non-wovens to water penetration by means of the dynamic test method, the static test method, and the program test method.
The new Titan Universal Strength Tester comes from a family of innovative equipment, designed and manufactured by James H. Heal – the World’s Premier Textile Testing Equipment Company. Drawing on the experience and resources of a company that has achieved ISO 9001 accreditation, Titan sets radically new standards in versatility, productivity and simplicity. Titan complies with the latest international textile standards and the software’s inherent versatility enables revised or new standards to be easily incorporated as they evolve.
The inherent flexibility of TruBurst enables testing of a broad range of materials from the textile, non-woven, paper, board and plastics industries.
The TEXTEST FX 3250 / FX 3255 Automatic PICK COUNTER is used for fast, convenient and accurate determination of the thread density of woven fabrics and wire meshes as well as the loop density of knitted fabrics.
The TEXTEST Moisture Meter L 5800 DRYMETER III is a compact hand-held instrument for fast and convenient determination of the moisture regain in fibers, yarns and fabrics. The instrument provides for direct and instant test results for 19 of the most commonly used textile materials and blends.
Used for the magnification and counting of picks & ends in woven fabrics and to count the course and wells in knitted fabrics.
Used to determining the appearance of textile fabrics after induced wrinkling.
The methods of tests in this standard are applicable to woven, and to warp-knitted fabrics. They are particularly applicable to ‘stretch’ fabrics such as are obtained by the use of elastomeric fibres or bulked yarns, or by a process such as slack mercerisation.
Handle operated manual arbour press used in conjunction with cutting dies to produce testing samples.
Dynawash 825 is used for the assessment of durability of garments and garment components, print durability, pleat retention, waddings and quilted waddings, cockling (differential shrinkage), flock retention, crinkle, seersucker and collars and cuffs.
