Hand Abrasion Tester



Functionality of a product is considered as a matter
of course, so the perception of quality is determined
primarily by the visual appearance. Damage
to a surface by the human hand is one of the main
reason for disturbance of the products quality
The hand abrasion is a very complex chemical and
mechanical combination. By touching a surface
the human hand performs a mechanical strike followed
by a push-slide force. The human hand consists
of a visco elastic material containing a rough
and structured surface. In addition, sweat or hand
cream creates a severe chemical environment.


The TRIBOTOUCH instrument is designed to do
real life testing of finished products or lab samples
in regards of resistance to hand abrasion. The
set-up of the TRIBOTOUCH is exactly reproducing
the complex chemo mechanical system of the
human hand abrasion according to international
The flexible design of the TRIBOTOUCH allows
various options and delivers reproducible results.
