The Gelbo Flex Tester with Particle Counter is to measure the amount of loose fibres (lint) shed from non-woven materials in a 30 second time period of flexing. It is important that non-woven textile materials must have a low tendency to lint.

The IDM Gelbo Flex Tester with Particle Counter is a fast and accurate instrument for determining the linting of non-woven materials.This test can also be applied to other materials like tissues. The sample is subjected to repetitive twisting and compression cycles, air is withdrawn from the testing chamber and particles in the air stream are counted and classified with the laser particle counter.
