Taber abraser test

Taber Abraser Test zur Ermittlung des Abriebwiderstands verschiedenster Materialien

The abrasion resistance of many different materials can be determined with the Taber abraser. As an internationally recognised test method, the Taber abraser test is mentioned in several national and international standards (ISO 9352, ASTM D 1044, DIN EN-Norm 438 – 6). The abrasive load is generated by two friction rollers that are pressed onto the rotating specimen with an established force. Differential weighing to determine the abraded proportion of the specimen is usually used for the evaluation. It is also possible to determine the wear depth as an alternative to the loss of weight method.
