Fastness to rubbing according to ISO 105-X12

The rubbing fastness test is used to determine the colour fastness of a surface against rubbing with a cotton fabric. A cylindrical test die with rubbing cloth, either dry or wet, travels a certain number of double strokes over the sample surface with a defined applied weight force. Subsequently, both the exposed area and the used cotton fabric are evaluated for visual changes via grey scale comparison.
