Losing stiffness or firmness, as of substance, fiber, structure, or bodily frame

Height sectional cut

Analysis of a 3D Topography Cutting the surface according to different heights into various planes


Determination of the surface’s or coating’s resistance against an applied deforming force For this, a sharp or blunt stylus is usually facilitated, depending on the inspected material


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
