Crease & Wrinkle
Recovery Testers Wrinkle Recovery Tester
The Wrinkle Recovery Tester is used to determine the appearance of textile fabrics after induced wrinkling.
It is applicable to both woven and knitted fabrics made from any fibre or combination of fibres.
Materials, which are insufficiently stable to carry a defined crease, for example, those which are limp, thick or have a tendency to curl, can be assessed for wrinkle resistance with this device.
Conditioned specimens are wrinkled under the load and time specified in the test method.
The precision spiral column ensures uniform distortion of the loaded test specimen. On removal from the test instrument, the specimen is allowed to recover for a specified time before the smoothness appearance and wrinkle recovery are evaluated against three-dimensional replicas or photographic standards.
