AATCC Test Method 165 Colorfastness to Crocking: Textile Floor Coverings This test method is designed to determine the degree of color transfer from the surface of textile floor coverings to other surfaces by rubbing.  The intent is to reproduce as near as possible true-to-life situations in all constructions, whether dyed, printed or otherwise colored.
AATCC Test Method 8 Colorfastness to Crocking This test method is designed to determine the amount of color transferred from the surface of colored textile materials to other surfaces by rubbing.  It is applicable to textiles made from all fibers in the form of yarn or fabric whether dyed, printed or otherwise colored.
ASTM D2054 Standard Test Method for Colorfastness of Zipper Tapes to Crocking This test method covers the determination of the degree of color that may be transferred from the textile tape of zippers of all fibers to other surfaces by rubbing under wet or dry conditions, or both.
ASTM D5053 Standard Test Method for Colorfastness of Crocking of Leather This test method covers the determination of the degree of color that may be transferred from leather to other surfaces by rubbing under wet (damp) or dry conditions, or both. This test method does not apply to wet blue.
ASTM D6279 Standard Test Method for Rub Abrasion Mar Resistance of High Gloss Coatings This test method covers procedures for evaluating the relative mar resistance of a series of high gloss coatings applied to a flat, rigid surface. Wet rub and dry rub abrasion tests are described. To fully characterize a coating's mar resistance, both tests should be run.
ASTM F1319 Standard Test Method for Determination of Abrasion and Smudge Resistance of Images Produced from Business Copy Products (Crockmeter Method) This test method describes a procedure for determining the amount of image transferred onto the surface of a white cloth by rubbing.  The test method can be employed to evaluate the abrasion and smudge resistance of business imaging products produced by impact printers, thermal transfer printers, and non-impact printers or copiers.
BI 161-01 (Ford) Mar Resistance Determination for Automotive Coatings This procedure is used to determine the mar resistance of automotive coatings.
BN 107-01 (Ford) Crocking Test  
BN 107-02 (Ford) Crocking - Instrumental Evaluation  
BN 108-10 (Ford) Crockmeter Scuff Test This method is used to determine the resistance to scuffing of the surface of trim materials
BS 1006 Methods of Test for Colour Fastness of Textiles and Leather WITHDRAWN - General principles. Definition of the grey scales for change in colour and for staining. Methods for determining colour fastness to approximately 70 different agents.
CFFA-7 Standard Test Methods - Chemical Coated Fabrics and Film To determine the abrasion resistance to transfer of color from chemical coating to another surface by rubbing action.
DIN 54 012 Tests for Colour Fastness of Textiles  
GM 9033P (General Motors) Colorfastness to Crocking (Rubbing) This test determines whether or not color may be transferred from the surface of one material to another by rubbing. Originally developed for textiles made from all fibers in the form of yam or fabric whether dyed, printed or otherwise colored, it has been found suitable for plastics and other materials used in automotive and related industries. It is based on AATCC Standard Test Method 8 published by the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists.
ISO 105-D02 Textiles - Tests for Colour Fastness Specifies a method for determining the resistance of the colour of textiles, except loose fibres, to the localized "spotting" carried out by hand. A specimen of the textile is rubbed with rubbing cotton cloth impregnated with solvent. The change in colour of the specimen and the staining of the rubbing cotton cloth are assessed with the grey scales.
ISO 105-X12 Textiles - Tests for Colour Fastness This part of ISO 105 specifies a method for determining the resistance of the colour of textiles of all kinds, including textile floor coverings and other pile fabrics, to rubbing off and staining other materials.
JIS K 6404-16 Testing Method for Rubber or Plastics Coated Fabrics  
JIS K 6547 Testing Method for Colour Fastness to Rubbing of Leathers  
JIS L 0849 Test Methods for Colour Fastness to Rubbing This Standard specifies methods for determining the resistance of the colour of the dyed textiles to rubbing.
Joint Industry Fabric Standards and Guidelines Standard for Colorfastness to Crocking The purpose of this test is to determine the degree of color that may be transferred from the surface of the upholstery fabric to other surfaces by rubbing.
LP-463PB-54-01 (Chrysler) Crock Mar Resistance  
SAE J 861 Method of Testing Resistance to Crocking of Organic Trim Materials This test can be used to determine the resistance to crocking (color rub-off) of organic trim materials such as fabrics, vinyl coated fabrics, leather, coated fiberboard and carpet.

NOTE: Optional accessories may be required to comply with these test standards.
