Scrub Abrasion & Washability Tester

DIN 53778, ASTM D2486, ASTM D4213, ASTM D4828, ASTM D3450, ISO 11998, ASTM F1319, ISO 105X12, Renault D431010, GME 60269, ECCA T11, EN 13523- 11, EN 60730-1 and EN 13300.

The Scrub Abrasion and Washability Tester is used to test the resistance of paint, varnish or coatings to scratching, wearing, and color loss due to wet or dry abrasion, by simulating everyday wear from cleaning actions or general use.

The test is either used as a "pass or fail" test by testing to a specified number of strokes or defining the minimum number of strokes at which a coating fails by checking at regular intervals.

Flexible Adaptation to Many Tests


The Scrub Abrasion and Washability Tester allows for the most flexible adaptation of the wide range of scrub, abrasion and washability tests that are in use. First the base apparatus has to be selected from two models. The Scrub Abrasion and Washability Tester Basic is available without pumps for dry tests, and the Scrub Abrasion and Washability Tester is available with pumps for dry and wet tests. Each base unit is completely flexible and allows for easy exchange of the tools used for testing.

A variety of tests are possible, with just small modifications to make the device suitable for other tests. This modular system significantly decreases the costs for laboratories to comply to many standards.




The Scrub Abrasion and Washability Tester is driven by a micro-step controlled electro motor which allows precise and steady speed and sinus wave form control. Operation is intuitive by means of a jog-dial switch and a multi-lingual operating menu on a large illuminated display. Operating is very easy with the Triple i operating interface. This unique system guides the operator through the interface of the lab-machines. At each step of the multilingual operating menu the interface detects which buttons are active and indicates these by means of an illuminated red center. This results in a very intuitive operating system which is enhanced with information on the machine’s display.
