Best known for our expertise in abrasion and surface wear, Taber also offers solutions to measure resistance to scratch, mar and scuff damage; along with bending resiliency and stiffness.

TABER with its original design in all its products, is used in various plastic materials, paints, rubbers, etc. in all sectors such as automotive, railway, aerospace, Graphic Arts, and the whole industry in general.

NEURTEK is the official authorized TABER distributors and Technical Service for repairs, adjustments and calibrations, in Spain and Portugal.


Stiffness Tester - Model 150-B

Stiffness Tester - Model 150-B (110V, 60Hz) - The Model 150-B is a manually operated instrument, which is based on the original Taber V-5 Stiffness Tester. Mounted on telescoping tripod legs, the Model 150-B is lightweight for easy portability. Electronic components are sealed in a rugged housing. The model 150-B requires the user to manually record stiffness testing data, average the readings and multiply results by a scaling factor. +

Stiffness Tester - Model 150-E

The TABER® V-5 Stiffness Tester - Model 150-B or 150-E is used to evaluate stiffness and resiliency properties of materials up to 10,000 Taber Stiffness Units. This precision instrument provides accurate test measurement to ±1.0% for specimens 0.004" to 0.219" thickness. Materials include paper products, cardboard, plastics, metals, textiles, rubber, wire, tubing, felts and other sheet materials. +

Specimen Holders

The taber Abraser can be used for many different applications. Interchangeable specimen holders provide a suitable fixing device dependent on the material. +

Scuffing Head

The Scuffing Head Attachment is used to evlauate the scuff-resistance of materials such as vinyl, painted surfaces, leather, car floor mats, etc. +

Multi-Media Attachment

The Multi-Media Attachment can recreate contact surface wear caused by liquids, fluids and powders. Measure the abrasivity of materials including paints, pigments, adhesives, sealants, pastes, additives, etc. +

Wheel loads

Wheel loads normally specified for the Taber Rotary Platform Abraser (Abrader) are 250 grams, 500 grams, or 1000 grams. +

Quick Release Wheel / Hub Kit

Permits quick wheel mounting, without the need of a locking nut. An innovative collet makes certain the wheels remain securely fastened until disengaged. Easily installs on most Taber Rotary Platform Abrasers. Kit includes both left & right mounting assemblies. +

TABER Rotatory Platform Abraser

Taber Abraser has been used for quality & process control, research & development and material evaluation. Used to test a wide spectrum of materials, the abraser (abrader) has been referenced in numerous standards and specifications and is frequently called a Rotary Platform Dual (Double) Head Tester. +

Abrading Wheels

Abrading Wheels are available in a range of abrasiveness. +

Refacing Wheels

Refacing medium for Taber Rotary Platform Abraser - 4” diameter with 9/32" center hole, 150 grit abrasive paper (100 pc.). Use to reface most Calibrase wheels. +

Wheel Refacer 250

The Wheel Refacer is used to precision dress the contact surfaces of Calibrade wheels, and to true out of round wheels or correct ´crowning´ conditions on both Taber Calibrase and Calibrade abrasive wheels. +

Specimen Mounting

Mounting Cards provide a unique way to mount flexible specimens, and include a test report to capture critical data. Mounting sheets allow you to affix specimens directly to a specimen table. +

Quiet Cabinet

The Quiet Cabinet has been specially designed to reduce sound levels by approximately 20% and provide a convenient, dus-free workspace for your taber Abraser +

Grit Feeder

Designed to evaluate the resistance of floor surface coatings to abrasion +

Sample Cutter

Sample Cutter for the Taber Rotary Abraser. A heavy-duyt blade cuts a 4.2-inch diameter specimen and the punch creates a precise 1/4 inch center hole. +

Taber Rotary Platform Abraser- test Accessories

Taber Offers a selection of specimen plates to assist with the evaluation of coating. Counterweigths are available to expand the testing load. And To tes specimens that are greater than 12mm but less than 40 mm, we offer the arm height extension kit. +

TABER Linear Abraser, model 5750

The TABER® Linear Abraser (Abrader) - Model 5750 has been engineered to test either contoured or flat surfaces, making it ideal to evaluate finished products of all sizes. To expand the versatility of this instrument, the Linear Abraser can be configured with optional test attachments to perform different types of abrasion tests. And can be used for both wet and dry testing. +


The standard Wearaser has a diameter of 1/4" and is the size and shape of a pencil eraser. +

Scratch (spherical tip)

To measure the relative resistance or susceptibility of a material surface to marring, ouging and other similar physical damage, spherical scratch tips are suggested. Available in a 1.0mm or 7.0mm diameter hemisphere, these tips can be screwed directly into a tapped hole at the bottom of the spline shaft (Model 5750 only). +

Scratch-Scrape-Coin Holder

A Coin Holder Attachement can be used for ascrape, rub, mar or adhesion testing. This attachment is inserted into the standard wearaser collet and will increase the test load by 27 grams. A stadard coin can then be inserted into the attacment for test purposes. Three common angle are available including 45º, 60º and 75º. +


The Crockmeter provides a quick and accurate method to determine the amount of color transferred from textile materials (such as fabric, carpeting, yarn and leather) to other surfaces by rubbing. The Crockmeter has also been employed to perform rub abrasion, scuff and / or mar tests on flat specimens. +

ScotchBrite Abrasive Pad Kit

Use the Taber Linear Abraser or Reciprocating Abraser to evaluate material resistance to abrasion and damage caused by "scrubbing". +

Rub- Univarsal Attachment

The Universal attachment permits "real world" testing by attaching virtually any material to it for testing against the specimen. This attachment is recommended for flat specimens. +

Rub - Friction

Conduct rubbing tests by dragging "actual" materials across a surface. +
