Martindale abrasion machine


What does it test:

It tests the quality of material (uppers, linings, insocks) to abrasion.

Why is it important:

Walking initiates rubbing between shoe interior materials and socks. If the material is not of prescribed quality, the abrasion can damage its structure, which leads to reduction of material‚??s basic features. It also reduces the visual attractiveness of product. This is why testing of material to abrasion is needed.
