Robust 300 l plastic chamber with front door loading. A larger version with 1000 l test chamber volume can be supplied in special design.

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

Indentation Hardness Tester 263

A steel block with circular indented inserts is applied onto the test surface and produces a pressure mark, the length of which is measured with a microscope. The impression hardness in accordance with Buchholz is established from the length of the impression, using the standard table


Variable Impact Tester 304

ERICHSEN Impact Tester 304 are used for determination of impact resistance, deformability and tensibility of coatings and substrates as well as adhesion of the coatings. The ball impact test simulates this type of stress under standardised conditions. A ball punch of defined weight the bottom of which is of fixed diameter, is dropped freely down a guide tube from an agreed or variable height.  ASTM D 2794 ISO 6272-1 ISO 6272-2

Scratch Hardness Tester 430P-SMART

The motor-driven SCRATCH HARDNESS TESTER 430 P-Smart is a universal testing instrument designed for carrying out a wide range of tests on varnished and plastic surfaces to determine their resistance to scratches and cuts. Single cuts, parallel cuts and – by turning the specimen by 90° – cross-cuts can be applied to test panels of various thicknesses. The SCRATCH HARDNESS TESTER 430P-Smart is particularly provided for adhesion tests using the cross hatch cut method (in accordance with all mostly required standards) and for specific plastics tests according with Opel (scratch resistance and writing effect). For these as well as for further tests numerous setting possibilities on the basic instrument and a large variety of test tools are available to perform DIN EN ISO 2409, ASTM D 3359, JIS K 5600-5-6, SNV 37 111, VDA 621-411, ECCA T6, GME 60280, GMW14688 & many other test methods.  Using the SCRATCH HARDNESS TESTER 430 P-Smart, series testing can be conducted with much greater ease. The results of testing are reproducible and well-defined.  Optionally with manually actuated/motor-driven loading force and manually actuated/automatic test panel turn.  Operation, documentation and data management via ERICHSEN-App


Multi-Cross Hatch Cutter 295

Successful instrument for producing a cross cut pattern in the coating to be tested Besides the universally applicable single blade instrument with folding ruler. 5 special multi-cutter versions available for tests in accordance with the standards listed. ISO 2409, EN ISO 24091), JIS K 5600-5-6, EN 13523-64(formerly ECCA-T6), ASTM D 3359, VDA 621-411, DBL 5416, ISO 2409-1972, BS 3900:E6, NF T 30-038 (all withdrawn)

Available option is the CrossScan 295/XVI Automatic  Cross Hatch Cut  Rating System ; evaluation software; consists of a handy dome for placing on the crosshatch pattern to be evaluated; equipped with camera, LED lighting and potentiometer for intensity control of lighting (5% – 100%). The evaluation takes place via the included software (PC not included).

Conical Mandrel Bend Tester 312

To establish the limiting extension of coating materials on sheet metal specimens by bending around a conical mandrel (1/8″ – 1 ” or 3 mm – 38 mm dia.). From the diameter of the mandrel at the point where the crack starts, the maximum relative extension of the coating can be calculated. With quick-clamping device for faster operation.
