The Taber Abrasion Test Models 1700 and 1750 deliver reliable data in minutes and are used to evaluate a material's resistance to wear. It has been specified by numerous industries as the standard for wear and abrasion research, quality and process control, materials evaluation, and product development.
ASTM, ISO, BS, DIN, TAPPI
A flat specimen is mounted to a turntable platform that rotates on a vertical axis. As the turntable rotates, contact of the specimen against the sliding rotation of two abrading wheels cause wear while a vacuum system removes loose wear debris during the test. The resulting abrasion marks form a pattern of crossed arcs in a circular band that cover an area approximately 30 cm2.
