The Taber Abrasion Tester is simple to operate, this instrument has been accepted worldwide as a standard for wear and abrasion research, quality and process control, materials evaluation, and product development. Taber Rotary Abrasers are capable of providing reliable data in a matter of minutes, compared to the years that may be required with in-use testing.
Two Models Available:
- Model 5135 - Single Platform Abraser
- Model 5155 - Dual Platform Abraser
This Coefficient of Friction Tester (COF) / Peel Tester can measure static and kinetic coefficient of friction as well as run seal strength tests, 180° peel, 90° peel, and T-peel tests. The FP-2260 also offers a tensile test mode to perform lightweight tensile tests up to 10 kg (22 lbf).
Its small bench top design makes the FP-2260 light weight allowing it to be used in a laboratory or setup out on the production floor for offline testing as needed.
Plastic film, paper, paperboard, adhesives, labels and packaging materials are ideally tested with the FP-2260.
Replaces the FP-2255.
The ProGage utilizes the most advanced technology to quickly and accurately measure the thickness of sheeted materials such as paper, plastic film, tissue and toweling, nonwovens, and textiles.
The 1270 PCA measures the force to open or bend paperboard and scored paper carton.
Digital bending resistance/stiffness tester with parallel clamp and tubing clamp with RS-232.
The PGX+ is a compact, video-based instrument that measures the wetting and absorption of virtually any size or shape surface without the need to prepare sample strips. Eliminating the need to cut your material makes it ideal for any product that is difficult to cut such as rigid components, drywall board, glass or the inside of a container. It also performs nondestructive testing so can be used on expensive materials without damage.
