Wet Abrasion Scrub Testers

Wet abrasion scrub testers provide an accelerated method for determining the wear resistance of surface coatings and materials.

Automatic Washability Test to perform a Abrasion and washability scrub test on coated panels to define the resistance of paint, varnish or related products to scratching, wear and colour loss due to wet or dry scrub abrasion. Simulating everyday wear from cleaning actions or general use. Also suitable for testing plastics, woodpanels, kitchentops, white goods etc..

The test is either used as a “pass / fail” test by testing to a specified number of strokes or defining the minimum number of strokes at which a coating fails by checking at regular intervals.

The wet abrasion scrub testers are also suitable to test the performance of of cleaning agents and compounds.

Many standards require dry or wet abrasion and scrub test to be performed to determine the quality of coating. Like the EN 13300 for example. This standard defines a quality ranking for interior coatings to wet abrasion.

The Automatic Washability Tester is driven by a micro-step controlled electro motor which allows precise and steady speed and sinus wave form control. Operation is intuitive by means of a jog-dial switch and a multi-lingual operating menu on a large illuminated display.

The two integrated pumps allow the user to test two fluids simultaneously. Per pump two test beds are fed and can be controlled separately. This allows the Automatic Washability Tester to be used both in coating industry and detergent industry. The adjustable tool carrier allows the user to safely perform test on a wide array of samples.

See accessories for available brushes and weights.
