Form of interaction involving touch and the process of recognizing objects through touch

Hand abrasion

A special abrasion between the product surface and human hand which has chemical environment and mechanical rubbing motion is simulated by ABREX® (ABREX®-Abrasion)


The force that makes it difficult for things to move freely when they are touching each other


A structure supporting or containing something


This type of deformation is also irreversible A break occurs after the material has reached the end of the elastic, and then plastic, deformation ranges At this point forces accumulate until they are sufficient to cause a fracture

Fingerprint affinity

The tendency that human fingerprint is imprinted onto the surface of the product


Elasticity is the ability of a body to resist a distorting influence or stress and to return to its original size and shape when the stress is removed

Effective Contact area

When two objects touch, a certain portion of their surface areas will be in contact with each other Also usable for haptic evaluation  Because of the shape of the human finger tip, we only can perceive the uppermost microns of an object s surface


Special coating designed for effort-saving cleaning procedure
