Testers washability and abrasion of brushability

Nowadays it requires increased mechanical strength. And one of the most important criteria in this area is the abrasion resistance. Depending on the nature and destination of the product, there are several test methods.

Some test methods are based on the principle of "abrasion by friction". Others are based on the projection of abrasive particles on the test specimen. These techniques provide valuable information about materials and processes.

To accommodate the growing needs of the industry in research and control, Elcometer develops, manufactures and supplies a range of products designed to make wear-resistance tests. These tests, standardized or conventional, are widely used for many applications.





Elcometer 1720 Tools

The Elcometer 1720 can perform tests according to many standards and test methods simply by changing abrasive tools.

The tools are not supplied as standard with the new Elcometer 1720 and must be ordered separately.

Samples can be tested by a combination of methods to dry and wet conditions.
