  • Measure abrasion resistance and other material properties. 
  • Integrated T-slot table makes specimen mounting straightforward, permitting consistent test set-up.
  • A free floating head follows the contours of test specimens, permitting the testing of flat or contoured products.
  • Supplied with the 2” diameter Universal Attachment and Scotch-Brite™ scouring pads, this instrument may be used to measure resistance to scrubbing for products like nonstick coatings.

ASTM D4060, ASTM D3884, ASTM D3389, and ISO 5470


A test attachment is secured to the bottom of a vertical spline shaft and accessory weights may be placed on a weight holder affixed to the top.  A precision bearing on the spline shaft creates a "free-floating" test system.  As the test arm moves in a linear motion, the "free-floating" system will raise or lower as the test attachment follows the contours of the specimen being tested - curved or flat.
