More Information

The variable stroke kit (10033) allows the user to run non-standard size panels so that a customer can test panels that are shorter in length than what is called for in the standards testing methods. When ordered with the machine as an option will be pre-installed at the factory. The kit can be added to the machine at anytime and only requires a basic amount of tools to retrofit to the machine.


Conforms to ASTM D7835, EN 13523-11, Reference: ASTM D4752, ASTM D2486, ASTM D5402; ISO 50230


  1. The front panel mounted controls make it simple for the user to program the required number strokes to run for a specified test, then simply lower the head, close the cover, and press the start button, the machine will do the rest.
  2. This frees the operator to perform other QC test while the machine performs the rub test consistently and reliably with the added benefit of greatly reducing operator contact with and exposure to the solvents being used for the rub test procedure. Once the cycle counter reaches the preset number of strokes the unit will shut off the solvent flow and return to the start position ending the test.
  3. The operator can return at any time to check the results of the Rub Test. The quick change solvent pad system means that preparing for the next test procedure is quick and efficient.
