James Heal continues to impress testing experts throughout the world with their latest Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester. This masterpiece of precision engineering demonstrates James Heal's commitment to simplify and accelerate routine laboratory testing.
The Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester has evolved over several decades offering improved design and intuitive operating features for users. Every detail and every touch point has been created with the user in mind.

Historically developed for testing woven and knitted textiles, the Martindale tester is used for many different materials, including nonwovens, socks, gloves, cords and straps, carpets, leather wood high pressure laminates, painted surfaces and for many other applications (either dry or wet).
James Heal instruments are used around the world by many well-known retailers renowned for high quality standards including Next, BHS, Marks & Spencer, Victoria’s Secret, Louis Vuitton. The company supplies instruments to almost all of the world’s car manufacturers plus numerous textile and garment manufacturers around the world.
