Surface finish testing
Surfaces of furniture such as cabinets, kitchens, desks and worktops need to be able to withstand the rigours of day-to day-use. Spills, hot saucepans, hot cup marks and scratches can all take their toll and reduce the lifespan of your products.
Our UKAS-accredited finishes lab can conduct tests to measure:
- Abrasion, impact, scrape and scratch resistance
- Resistance to wet and dry heat, typically over the range of 55°c - 160°c depending on service use
- Chemical resistance, including oils, acids, bleaches, tea and coffee
The experts at FIRA International test to all the main standards, and have even developed their own standard, FIRA 6250:2007 Specification for Furniture Materials.
Contact our experts who will be able to explain the test(s) applicable to your specific product and what standards you should be looking to meet.
