In order to meet customers’ expectations, manufacturers, suppliers, and retailers must all provide products that function effectively while maintaining an untarnished appearance, even after being owned for a long period of time. This is why it is essential to be able to predict the ability of a product to resist damage caused by abrasion that occurs on a day-to-day basis. Since this kind of deterioration is always a result of objects rubbing against the surface of merchandise, different test methods have been developed to accurately measure the effect of long-term abrasion on the integrity and appearance of both commonplace and specialty items.product7_IN

Qualitest’s equipment is customized to serve a range of industries, providing both manufacturers and suppliers with the capacity to test several of their high-quality goods with a single machine. Our DIN Abrasion Tester not only performs assessments of polishes, paints, lacquers, and varnishes to determine the endurance of these product coatings, but also effortlessly analyzes frictional loss on rubber products such as tires, conveyor belts, and hoses, as well as commercial products such as footwear.

There are many accessories available to modify the DIN Abrasion Tester, including an additional weight system that can increase contact pressure force up to 20 N. Consisting of a high-power drive system and abrasion drum, with a Plexiglas cover to ensure operator safety, our DIN Abrasion Tester is a proven, low-cost method for simulating long-term wear on samples.
