Washability and Scrubbability Tester 494MC

Operation via keyboard and display adjustable stroke rate and stroke path Parameter storage for 20 test cycles up to 3 tests simultaneously.  For the assessment 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.DIN 53 778-2 ASTM D 2486 DIN EN ISO 11998

Original Taber Abraser 352

The TABER® ABRASER 352 D (Platform), with its attractive and modern design, is a robust tabletop unit. The precise control and drive elements are located in a sturdy aluminum housing. Easy operation is via LCD touch screen, with functions such as abraser status, visual reference of completed test, cycle/time switching (completed or remaining), programmable pause interval, language selection and much more. The TABER® ABRASER Model 352 D (Type 1750) has two specimen holders for performing abrasion tests.

Purpose and application: Resistance to abrasion is one of the most important mechanical properties of surfaces. Among the methods used to test abrasion resistance, working with this unit is the most common and widely used method. Numerous national and international standards make explicit reference to this test instrument. The Original TABER® ABRASER can be used to perform abrasion tests on paintwork and other coatings, such as rubber, paper, leather, ceramics, textile fabrics and metals. This device is used in research and development as well as in production and quality control.

Principle of the test: The abrasion is caused by two friction rollers which act with a defined force on the rotating specimen holder to which the specimen is attached. An essential feature of these abrasion tests is the X-shaped grid.  In acc. to EN 13329, NEMA LD 3-2000, EN 438-2, ISO 4586-2, NALFA LF-01
