Abrasion / Washability / Brushability Testers

Improved mechanical resistance is part of today’s quality requirements. One important criteria for assessing this feature is abrasion resistance. Depending on the nature and purpose of product, various testing methods are available.

There are testing methods related to the “abrasion by friction” concept. Others are based on the projection of abrasive particles on to the test specimen. These techniques provide valuable information about materials and processes.

To meet industry’s growing needs for research and control, Elcometer develops, manufactures and supplies a range of instruments designed for wear resistance tests. Standardised or conventional, these tests are widely used for numerous applications.
