Pilling is a fabric surface fault characterized by little pills of entangled fibers clinging to the surface. These are formed during wearing or washing by the entanglement of the loose fibres, which protrude from the fabric surface, and development of these into spherical bundles anchored to the fabric by a few unbroken fibers. These give a very unsightly look to the garments. To determine the tendency to form pills, test specimens taken from the fabric sample are rubbed against each other under controlled conditions. The appearance of the test specimen, after rubbing for the specified period, is compared against standard rating photographs (Woven pilling photographs and knitted pilling photographs) for grading the fabric.
Paramount Pilling TESTER i9 (4 Boxes) (Digital Pilling Tester) consists of four wooden cubical Boxes, of exact Dimension, with inside surfaces lined with standard cork sheet and outside surfaces beautifully laminated. These boxes are rotated about their central axis at a specified speed with the help of a geared motor. A Pre-set Digital counter stops the motor automatically after the desired number of revolutions. The test specimens are firmly held around standard pilling (rubber) tubes. Four such tubes are placed in each box and then rotated for desired number of revolutions after which they are taken out and assessed visually against standard rating photographs and graded.
The apparatus is beautifully finished and the boxes are covered with a layer of laminated sheet for life long trouble free operations.RELATED STANDARDS:
