Shrinkage Template & Scale:
Shrinkage Template & Scale is used for finding accurate Shrinkage in fabric and Garments. B-Tex Engineering provides a Shrinkage Template & Scale which is calibrated and of high quality. Shrinkage Template & Scale also measures the dimensional changes in fabrics after laundering, dry cleaning etc.
Template and shrinkage scale made up of transparent polymer plate to apply standard pressure on test specimen. The Shrinkage Scale 15″ & Template has a fine calibrated marking of 18″ x 18″ & 10″ x 10″ bench-marks. It ensures reading of laundered or dry-cleaned or washed or processed fabric or garment directly and accurately.
Features of Shrinkage Template & Scale:
To determine directly the % dimensional change (shrinkage) in all types of fabrics.
Fine calibrated Shrinkage Template with 18″ x 18″ & 10″ x 10″ benchmarks length-wise & width-wise.
Calibrated scale to evaluate shrinkage & stretch directly Up to 15%.
Two fine tipped black & yellow fabric markers are supplied for accurate marking on light & dark colour fabrics.
How Shrinkage Template & Scale works?
The marking template should be placed on the specimen to be tested, making sure that the fabric is in flat position before marking.
Hold the template firm, and carefully mark the fabric through the eight slots of the template, to ensure that it does not move.
Now put the fabric in the washing machine or Dry Cleaning.
Dry the sample as per any of the method. It can either be Line Dry or Flat Dry or Tumble Dry.
To find the dimensional change read the Shrinkage/Stretch on 3 points on the Wrap side and 3 points on Weft Side.
Get the mean value of wrap-wise and weft wise readings to get the Accurate Shrinkage or Stretch.
The Shrinkage Template & Scale confirms with the international standards and comes under warranty. All this help provide customer satisfaction that promotes long term customer relationship which is our ultimate objective at B-Tex Engineering.
