Abrasion resistance

Abrasion resistance is a measure of how durable a fabric is to scrapes, cuts, and other physical environmental hazards. To gauge abrasion resistance, we test our fabrics in our corporate lab. This machine simulates field conditions with a series of wheels that run over the fabric swatch thousands of times. The higher the cycle count until the fabric wears out, the higher abrasion resistant that fabric is.

Thermal stability

Thermal stability is a measure of how long or how well a fabric holds up against extreme heat. We measure this fabric quality conducting a Thermal Protective Performance test. This TPP test exposes a swatch of fabric to a regulated flame and raditant heat for a precise amount of time. The fabric's TPP level is determined by how much burn damage is observed after the test.
