Veslic Tester

The Veslic Tester is used for colorfastness to rubbing tests (similar to crocking) of leather, finished textiles, and other materials. The machine features three stations that can be individually set to 500g or 1,000g loads, and up to 25% stretch may be applied to the specimens once they are clamped to the oscillating test bed. Each station has an adjustable holder for felt test pads, and can accommodate rubber pads of the same size.

Felt pads are used for color fastness and marring evaluations.  Tests may be performed either dry or wet (typically DI water or synthetic perspiration is used). Test specimens and the felt test pieces are evaluated for change in color utilizing standard gray scales in a light booth. Rubber pads may be used in place of the felt to simulate events such as the sole of a shoe rubbing on a leather upper as in the case of a wearer crossing their legs and resting one shoe on top of the other.

In addition to felt and rubber pads, abrasive papers, cotton fabric, or other similar rubbing elements may be used with some modifications to the pad holders.
