Due to the high demand of ABREX® testing, a multi-station ABREX® tester is desiged to serve this purpose. Here we present a 3-station ABREX®-TRES. 3 samples can be tested at the same time, either with the same textiles/liquid or different textiles/liquid depending on your needs.
ABREX®-ABRASION, is a soft-chemo-mechanical fingertip & hand abrasion tester. The simulated wear pattern matches reality with 99% accuracy. It is a highly complex abrasion process which involves:
• A 45° angle impact driven by a dynamic pneumatic cylinder attached with a viscoelastic fingertip under a defined load;
• Then a friction rubbing or tumbling motion between the sample and a textile containing dirt, dandruff, oil, sweat or various types of testing liquids;
Followed by a retraction movement with or without the contact at the surface depending on the application.
