Tetrapod Abrasion Tester

Home » Tetrapod Abrasion Tester

The Tetrapod tester tests the mechanical action on surface texture of textile carpet. A cylindrical drum, lined with specimens and containing the Tetrapod foot, is rotated the required number of times so that the Tetrapod Foot ‘walks’ over the specimens. The appearance of the tested specimen is compared to that of a concurrently tested controlled specimen.
