Wet Abrasion Scrub | Washability Tester

TQC scrub / washability test now custom configurable

TQC Abrasion scrub/ washability Test to perform an abrasion and washability  test on coated panels to define the resistance of paint, varnish or related products to scratching, wearing and colour loss due to wet or dry abrasion. Simulating everyday wear from cleaning actions or general use.

The test is either used as a “pass / 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 new abrasion scrub/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, which is available in four models. A 110VAC and 230VAC model without pumps for dry tests, and a 110VAC and 220VAC model 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. In order to choose the right parts a special Custom Configuration Matrix and a Standards Selection Table are available. These are available for download in the Extra Info section.

With the introduction of the next generation washability tests, the costs for laboratories to comply to many standards significantly decreases.

State-of-the-art-technology
The TQC Automatic 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.
