SDL Upgrades Three Core Instruments

Rock Hill, S.C.-based SDL Atlas Inc. has upgraded three of its core laboratory testing instruments. The Martindale Abrasion and Pilling Tester, the Rotawash Colorfastness Tester and ICI Pilling and Snagging Tester — now known as RotaPill Pilling and Snagging Tester — now feature a state-of-the-art multilingual touch-screen controllers. All three models also were redesigned for function as well as appearance. The Martindale’s new design incorporates a storage rack for the light weight motion plate. The Rotawash now is constructed using stainless steel, and the washpots press into place on the new design making changes easier. The RotaPill now features magnetic cork-lined plates that can accommodate snagging points for easy cork changes and to eliminate the need for a second set boxes dedicated to snagging.
