Mechanical dishwashing resistance of domestic articles (125 wash cycles)

Method for testing the resistance of domestic articles made from ceramic, glass, glass ceramic, vitreous enamel, metal, and plastics under the combined chemical, thermal, and mechanical stresses of mechanical dishwashing in domestic dishwashers.

The analysis is to be used as a reference test method for domestic dishwashing only. It does not define the number of dishwashing cycles that any given product shall withstand.

The test includes 125 washing cycles followed by an inspection according to EN 12875-2. Please note that the cost is per batch, and thus adding more products to the same order will not increase the total cost:

  • 1 product per batch, cost per product €804

  • 2 products per batch, cost per product €402

  • 3 products per batch, cost per product €268

  • 4 products per batch, cost per product €201

The cost includes one inspection per batch; the addition of another inspection will add €50 to the overall cost.
