CCSi features this high quality Crock Meter for evaluating the degree of color that may be transferred from textiles to other surfaces by rubbing under wet or dry conditions (colorfastness) as described in ASTM D3181 & AATCC Test Method 8.
The Model HT8361A is also useful in determining the colorfastness of leather as described in ASTM D5053.
This Crock Meter may also be employed to evaluate the abrasion and smudge resistance of business imaging products produced by impact printers, thermal transfer printers, and nonimpact printers or copiers as described in ASTM F1319 and has also been found to be a suitable replacement for the ‘Sutherland Ink Rub Test’ as described in ASTM D5264 and ASTM F1571.
