Mechanical tests


The abrasion tests make it very often possible to evaluate the
resistance of products and coatings to frictions.

Automatic abraser AB5000

Tests the resistance of coatings to wear, washability and resistance to detergents.

  • Operates in dry or wet conditions.
  • Four tracks.
  • Two integrated pumps to test 2 fluids simultaneously.
  • Stroke speed : 1 - 60 strokes/minute.
  • Adjustable stroke length between 20 and 300 mm.
  • Weights of 60 and 100 g.
  • Various abrasives : nylon brushes, wild boar brushes, sponges, abrasive pads ...

AB5000 : Automatic abraser 230V.
AB5005 : Automatic abraser 110V.

Linear abraser Taber ref. 5750

No matter if your product is curved, round, small or large,
the new linear abraser Taber will be able to analyse it !

  • Abrasive head assembled on a vertical sliding axis to follow the contours of every sample.
  • Uses standardised Wearaser abrading wheels CS-10, CS-10F, CS17, H-18 and H-22.
  • General-purpose: amplitude, stroke speed, charge and number of adjustable cycles.
  • Thanks to the fast change of the head, the linear abraser changes into a scratch tester or makes it possible to carry out the crock test.

Rotary abraser Taber ref. 5135 / 5155

The Taber abraser allows you to carry out accelerated wear tests on a large variety of materials. Mounted to a rotating turntable, specimens are subjected to the rub-wear of two abrasive wheels.

5135 : Rotary abraser single model.
5155 : Rotary abraser dual model.


Abraser Mickle

Determines the resistance of printed inks to rub and abrasion. The printed material to be tested is clamped on a rubber platen and then subjected to rub by moving a substrate, provided with the same printed or not printed material, backwards and forwards. The tester can test many plane materials.


Oscillating abrasion tester ref. 6160

This oscillating tester makes it possible to carry out abrasion tests by a horizontal displacement of the specimen plunged within an abrasive.

It is used to test the friction resistance of plastic or glass (window glass or contoured lenses - optional Bayer kit).

  • Four stroke lengths : 25,4 / 50,8 / 76,2 and 101,6 mm.
  • Variable stroke speed : from 100 to 200 cycles per minute.
