This tester is widely used as a standard for many silicone key pad and membrane switch manufacturers. This abrader is used as a standard to the auto, appliance, cell phone, plastics, and coating industries. It uses an  nexpensive roll of throw away abrasion paper. All build‐up error is eliminated and consistent readings are easily obtained
