Abrasion resistance and scrubbability

Instrument mainly intended for the determination of the washing and scrubbing resistance as well as cleanability of dispersion paints. The wide range of its adjustable parameters allows also some further tailored/customized testing matters (for example for testing cleaning agents/solutions, etc.).

Product Examples:

Washability and Scrub Resistance Tester, Model 494 MC

Microcontroller-operated instrument mainly intended for the determination of the washing and scrubbing resistance as well as cleanability of dispersion paints (specifically ”wall paints”)., The wide range of its adjustable parameters allows also some further tailored/customized testing matters (for example for testing cleaning agents/solutions, etc.) as well. In the above standard applications a matt black PVC foil will be coated, and - if required - soiled in a defined manner. After clamping into the device it will be exposed under the influence of a washing liquid the stress of the moving scrub body.

Original TABER® ABRASER Type 5135

Resistance to abrasion is one of the most significant mechanical properties of any surface. The use of the TABER® ABRASER is counted among the most commonly used and best-known methods for testing durability and resistance to wear. In numerous national and international standards specific reference is made to this test equipment. The Original TABER® ABRASER enables abrasion testing to be conducted on paint and other coatings such as rubber, paper, leather, ceramics, textile surface structures and metals. The equipment is suitable for use in research and development and for in-process and quality assurance controls.

Original TABER® ABRASER Type 5155

By using the Duo ABRASER 352 H (Type 5155), two abrasion tests with different specified parameters can be conducted simultaneously, yet independent of each other.
