Shear/Scratch Tester
Precision instrument measures damage to surfaces not classified as ordinary wear.

Using interchangeable tools, the Shear/Scratch Tester is used to measure the susceptibility of material surfaces to marring, shearing, gouging, scratching, scraping, engraving, and other similar physical damage not classified as ordinary wear. By changing the position of the sliding weight, the load applied on the specimen by the cutting tool can be selected from 0-1000g.
