North Tonawanda, NY
Product name: Reciprocating Abraser – Model 5900
Attributes/Comments: The Taber Reciprocating Abraser (Abrader) – Model 5900 offers versatility for evaluating physical surface damage on painted surfaces. Using optional attachments, the instrument can be configured to evaluate the relative resistance or susceptibility to wear and abrasion, rub, scratch , mar, gouge, scrape, plus others. A tool holder is mounted to a counterbalanced arm and remains stationary as a sliding specimen platform moves in a horizontal, reciprocating motion. Testing loads and adjustable speed permit testing for a variety of coatings.
Product name: Oscillating Abrasion Tester – Model 6100
Attributes/Comments: The Taber Oscillating Test – Model 6100 is best known as an oscillating sand tester. Described in ASTM F735 (Standard for Abrasion Resistance of Transparent Plastics and Coatings Using the Oscillating Sand Method), the oscillating sand tester is used to measure the relative abrasion resistance of a material to surface abrasion and/or marring. The primary application of the Oscillating Sand Abrasion Tester is for transparent materials and coatings utilized in windows and lenses, but it might also be used to evaluate organic paint and coatings, plastics, metals and other materials.
