ASTM D4213

Introducing ASTM D4213 - Industrial Physics

ASTM D4213 is a global ASTM standard scrubbing test method for measuring the scrub resistance of paints by abrasion weight loss. 

Over time, interior paint films often become soiled, especially near doorways, windows and play areas. They frequently need to be cleaned by scrubbing. This ASTM wet abrasion test method shows you the relative resistance of paints to erosion when scrubbed. 

Coatings that can be scrubbed clean with the least film erosion last longer. So a wet abrasion test to ASTM D4213 testing standards is a useful accelerated procedure  inspection.  

Although scrub resistance tests are normally used for interior coatings, they are sometimes used with exterior coatings as an additional measure of film performance. The term wet abrasion is sometimes used for scrubbing, and wet abrasion resistance or scrubbability for scrub resistance 

A couple of things to point out: any results you get from ASTM D4213 don’t necessarily represent the scrub resistance test results that might be gained if the test film were to dry before testing appreciably longer than the seven-day period specified. Plus the results obtained by ASTM D4213 also don’t necessarily relate to ease of soil or stain removal, referred to as ‘cleanability’ testing. Check out ASTM D3450 and ASTM D4828 if that’s what you need.

So, how can Industrial Physics improve your ASTM D4213 testing?  

TQC Sheen scrub abrasion and washability tester 

The TQC Sheen scrub abrasion and washability tester is used to inspect the resistance of paint, varnish or coatings to scratching, wearing, and color loss due to wet or dry abrasion. It achieves this with a scrub test that simulates everyday wear from cleaning actions or general use.  

Our scrub abrasion and washability testers are suitable for a wide range of scrub, abrasion and washability tests to ASTM standards including ASTM D4213. This accurate and easy to use modular system can significantly reduce laboratory costs.
