Abrasion

Abrasion Tester

Abrasion resistance is an important property for paint and coatings. An abrasion test is also common for tile, flooring, furniture, wall coverings, shower stalls, and bath tubs. The abrasion tester produces a repeatable, controlled condition to simulate everyday use or wear pattern. The abrasion testers have a flexible design to use brushes, sponges, abrasive pads, and sand paper to wear the surface. Besides abrasion testing, washability tests can also be performed. Stain resistance and detergent testing are additional uses for abrasion testers.
