Human fingertip abrasion & hand abrasion tester with true simulation
ABREX® is capable of translating the complex human fingertip and hand motions into a standardized testing machine. Compared with other systems which involve either linear drive, or gear system, only ABREX® can simulate the human fingertip and hand movement.
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.
