Scratch and mar accessories for the Taber Linear Abraser

Multi-Mar Attachment
Taber’s Multi-Mar Attachment enables you to interchange different mar and scratch tools using one attachment. Use this tool with the Linear Abraser to evaluate coating resistance to scratch, mar and scrape per ASTM D2197. Note, due to the load limit of the Linear Abraser, the maximum recommended weight for testing is 2400 grams. A common reference to this type of test is the “paperclip mar test” or “dime scrape test”.

Each Multi-Mar Attachment includes a loop stylus, which is a 1/16-inch diameter rod, bent into a “U” shape with and outside radius of 0.128 inches and hardened to Rockwell HRC 56 to 58. The stylus is chrome plated with a surface finish of 8RMS. The maximum intended load on this stylus is 2500 grams. Optional tools that may be used with this attachment include a needle stylus, Hoffman stylus, coin and GEM #1 paperclip.

The needle stylus is made from the same material as the loop stylus, and has a 1mm diameter tip. This tip should not be loaded in excess of 2500 grams. The Hoffman stylus has a contact arc of 0.275 inches.
