Porosity and Abrasion

HMS Original & Pumice Stone Comparison Process

Note: Trials should be done in the same type of sample washing machines.
  • Prepare 5 pieces of garment or leg panels for each trial. Garments or leg panels’ sizes should be the same and they must be of the same fabric type.
  • Spare 1 garment or leg panel and put the remaining four pieces in the machines.
  • Put 1 bucket of pumice stone (approx. 5 kg) in the first machine and 1 bucket of HMS (approx. 6.5 kg) in the second machine (volume of stones must be the same).
  • Fill HMS’ machine with 40, and pumice’s machine with 50 liters of water (HMS needs 20% less water).
  • Set the machine speed to 25-28 cycles per minute, without steam, with cold temperature, and set the timer for 120 minutes.
  • Take out 1 garment or leg panel from each machine every 30 minutes and mark stone type and time.
  • After 120 minutes, you will have 5 samples from each stone trial (10 in total):
    • Raw + 30 + 60 + 120 minutes of pumice stone
    • Raw + 30 + 60 + 120 minutes of HMS
  • Iron all samples and compare time and effect accordingly.
And guess what? HMS is the winner!
