When carrying out the Martindale test it is important to use the right test materials as otherwise it may impact on the accuracy of the tests end result. As the instrument’s manufacturer we have a critical understanding of this particular interface and make available the necessary test material, the SM25 cloth.

Whether it’s Abrasive Cloth, Woven or Non-woven Felt or Polyurethane foam. We guarantee that it will be entirely compliant with the relevant test standards. We also supply a number of alternate abradants which can be used depending upon the material under test.
