Taber 6160 Oscillating Abrasion Tester

The Taber Oscillating Abrasion Tester Model 6160 (replacing Model 6100) is based on the “oscillating sand tester”. The instrument is used to measure the relative resistance or susceptibility of a material to surface abrasion and scratching caused by an oscillating abrasive media. Applications of the Bayer Test include transparent materials and coatings.

  • The new design of the Oscillating Abrasion Tester allows for increased operating stability
  • The speed range has remained 100-200 cycles per minute but the range of stroke lengths have increased
  • Adjustable range from 0.25 - 6.0 inches (6.5 - 152.5mm)



ASTM F735 (International test method for Aerospace and Aircraft)


The specimens are mounted in a holder located in the bottom of a tray which is filled to a uniform depth with a standardized abrasive media. The tray reciprocates in a back and forth motion which causes the entire mass of the abrasive media to shift. With the optional Bayer Test Kit, the Model 6160 can determine the abrasion resistance of ophthalmic lenses.
