Physical Properties

Key factors in assessing overall durability of a fabric vary depending on the fabric construction.

Upholstery – Woven Fabrics 

ASTM D3511 (Brush Pill), Class 3 minimum Or ASTM D4970, (Martindale Tester), Class 3 minimum 

Breaking Strength
ASTM D5034 (Grab Test), 50 lbs. minimum in warp and weft

The surface wear of a fabric caused by rubbing and contact with another fabric.

High Traffic /  Public Spaces – Woven Upholstery Fabrics
ASTM D4157 (ACT approved #10 Cotton Duck)
