5 Key Features of the taber 551 Scratch Resistance Tester

The taber 551 Scratch Resistance Tester is used to test and evaluate the resistance to shearing, scratching, planing, scraping, and engraving of anodized materials, rigid organic materials, powder coatings, soft metals, plastics, glass, and coating adhesives.

Conform to the standard:

GB/T17657-1999, ISO4586-2, JISK6902, Federal series standard, Terrazzo90322-9E-1, UNI9428Furniture, AS/NZSAS2924.2, ASTMC217, CEN series standard, DIN53799 DIN68861-4

Main features:

1. Before loading the sample, you need to adjust the scale bar to the right height according to the thickness of the sample. The precision cutting tool is mounted on the scale bar and placed on the sample. Start the instrument, the rotary table rotates at a constant speed to ensure accurate measurement results. By changing the load of the cutting tool, you can evaluate the shear or scratch resistance of the material.

2. The scale bar is designed to be level with the sample and the turntable and can be raised or lowered as required. In addition, the bar can be lifted and suspended in the air to facilitate the removal of the sample by the operator. The total load on the sample can be adjusted from 0-1000g by changing the position of the sliding weights. Cutting tools can be selected from tungsten carbide instruments or conical drill bits.

3. Test results can be determined visually with the 10x magnifying glass provided, or users can use a high precision optical microscope to observe.

4. Easy to operate, easy to move, can test 1/2" to 4" thick square or round material.

5. Can also be used to test the same material, adhesive quality of protective coatings and the ultimate performance of similar materials.
