What is "Wyzenbeek Test" - Definition & Explanation

Abrasion test for fabric.. Fabric is pulled taut and rubbed in both the warp and filling directions, using a piece of cotton duck fabric as the abradant. The number of cycles, or double rubs, endured before the fabric shows "noticeable wear" is counted and determines the fabric's abrasion rating.
