Coated and uncoated surfaces need to be tested for resistance to abrasion caused by a brush, sponge, scouring pad, sand paper, and other means. Abrasion resistance can be tested by wet abrasion methods using scrub media or cleaning solutions. The most common applications are testing the scrub resistance of interior wall paints, floor tiles, shower stalls, and furniture surfaces. The abrasion tester can examine the washability of a coated surface for the removal of stains. Detergents and cleaning solutions can be tested and evaluated in a reproducible manner.
