AquAbrasion
Wet Abrasion Tester with TestWise Touch

The AquAbrasion is a Wet Abrasion Tester. It uses a controlled pump system to dose fabric specimens with liquid which keeps the specimen wet for the duration of the test. Deionised water can be used to replicate rain, or a perspiration solution can be used to replicate sweat. The AquAbrasion is an accurate and repeatable way of conducting wet abrasion testing, which is proven to be a crucial and often detrimental step in establishing the durability of outdoor wear.
Quotation
CONSISTENT MOISTURE DELIVERY
A controlled pump system delivers deionised water or perspiration solution in a standard dosage, ensuring samples remain wet throughout the test.

TESTWISE TOUCH
AquAbrasion is programmed and operated using the TestWise operating system. The simple system makes test setup easy with minimal training time required.

ENGINEERED WATER MANAGEMENT
The base plate is designed so that water is channelled into drainage apertures, managing the disposal of water from the instrument.

EASILY ACCESSIBLE
The design of the instrument enables ergonomic access to all stations from the front. The hinged lid provides easy access to each of the separate stations.

COMPLETE FLEXIBILITY
AquAbrasion retains the functionality of an original 9 station Martindale; it can perform dry and wet abrasion and tests the same standards and retailer test methods.

REPLICATING OUTDOOR WEAR
Fabric is abraded against itself while wet to replicate real life situations, such as a sleeve rubbing against the body of a garment in inclement weather conditions.
