Abrasion Ratings and Recommended Use


Pollack’s “recommended use” is based on abrasion ratings resulting from Laboratory Testing (Wyzenbeek or Martindale), the specific construction and yarns used in that fabric, and our years of experience seeing our fabrics used in the field.

Light Upholstery: decorative applications, pillows, backs of chairs. Under 15,000 Wyzenbeek double rubs.

Medium Upholstery: private spaces, low traffic areas, furniture used a few hours each day. 15,000 to 30,000+ Wyzenbeek double rubs or 20,000+ Martindale cycles.

Heavy Upholstery: family room sofas, high traffic areas, public spaces. 30,000 to 50,000+ Wyzenbeek double rubs or 40,000 Martindale cycles

High Performance Upholstery: constant traffic/demanding spaces such as casinos, transportation terminals, and 24-hour work spaces. 50,000 to 75,000+ Wyzenbeek double rubs.
