PILLING & SNAGGING TESTER 516
Scope Orbitor can be used to test both woven and knitted materials. It complies in full with the requirements of EN ISO 12945-1 ‘Textiles – Determination of fabric propensity to surface fuzzing and to pilling – Part 1: Pilling Box Method.’ This standard supersedes BS 5811, which is now withdrawn. In addition to Orbitor, HEALS offer Nu-Martindale and Impulse to fulfil the requirements of Parts 2 and 3 of EN ISO 12945. When fitted with Pilling Drums Orbitor complies with the requirements of Marks & Spencer test methods P18A and P18B. An additional kit is available to convert the Pilling Drum to a Snagging Drum, compliant with Marks & Spencer test method P21A.
