Martindale test in acc. with DIN CEN/TS 16611

The Martindale test was originally used to quantify the abrasion resistance of textiles or furniture. Since 2020, it has also been used as part of the QUALICOAT approvals to determine the abrasion resistance of powder coatings. An abrasive pad is moved across the sample in a defined pattern. Afterwards, the gloss is measured and compared with an undamaged sample.
