Colour fastness to rubbing tester

Colour fastness to rubbing is the most basic of colour fastness tests, yet Crockmaster is designed with exquisite attention to detail. Our product designers focused on your testing needs to ensure our crockmeter is simple to use and versatile. Available as a manual or motorised device, Crockmaster is used to determine colour fastness to wet and dry rubbing.
