Scraping endurance test for Decoral System products

In the Italian institute Qualital (Industrial Certification Institute for Aluminium) we ran some scraping endurance tests on aluminium sheets decorated in wood effect by the Decoral® sublimation process.

We ran the scraping endurance Taber Test on an aluminium alloy sample sheet painted and decorated in wood effect (see photo). The test was run complying with ISO 7784-2:1997 standards.


The Decoral® decorated sample got to 13500 cycles without uncovering the aluminium substrate, overcoming the endurance of “melamine” surfaces, which are normally used within fields where considerable hardness and scraping endurance are needed.

THE TEST SHOWED A HIGH SCALPING ENDURANCE, PROVING THE HIGH QUALITY OF DECORAL SYSTEM® PRODUCTS ONCE AGAIN.

The Taber Test consists in making a sample rotate in contact with two wheels covered with a special scraping paper. The number of turns (or cycles) needed to take the decoration off the aluminium support determines the scraping resistance.
