Oct '15
Producer of precision textile testing instruments is introducing its new mace snag tester – the Promace at ITMA 2015 in hall 07, stand H 122.

“James Heal will bring the experience of a fully working laboratory to the middle of the exhibition hall,” the company stated in a press release.

According to James Heal, the Promace is designed to rapidly determine the snagging resistance of robust apparel and furnishing fabrics and is compliant with ASTM D3939 (Mace), JIS L 1058 and VDA 230-220 standards.

It has many features including specific design elements to minimise or eliminate pin damage, intuitive controls which aid conformance to the standards and features which allow undertaking testing in total safety.

Innovation director Neil Pryke said, “We believe our instrument to be the safest, most efficient, accurate and repeatable instrument of its type and we invite ITMA visitors to visit our stand and judge that for themselves.” (AR)
