ICI Pilling Test Procedure

Take four samples of size 125 × 125 mm from the sample, taking care to avoid the same warp and weft yarns when sampling. Take two samples along the front of the warp direction, the other two samples are stacked along the latitudinal front, stitched 12 mm from the edge, and the front side of the sample is turned out, mounted on the polyurethane sample tube, using PVC tape. Both ends of the sample were fixed on the polyurethane tube. Clean the pilling box, put 4 samples into the same pilling box, close the lid, start the instrument, and rub the sample with the cork material. If there is no specific number of times, it is recommended that the coarse woven fabric be turned over 7200 rpm and the fine woven fabric turned over 14400 rpm. After the test is completed, the test sample is taken out and compared with the original sample for evaluation.
