Abrasion resistance is an important property for paint and coatings. An abrasion test is also common for tile, flooring, furniture, wall coverings, shower stalls, and bath tubs. The abrasion tester produces a repeatable, controlled condition to simulate everyday use or wear pattern. The abrasion testers have a flexible design to use brushes, sponges, abrasive pads, and sand paper to wear the surface. Besides testing scrub abrasion, the gardner-scrub can also be set up for washability tests. For other application specific tests such as stain resistance and detergent testing special modification kits are available.
