Improved Rotary Platform Abraser


Taber Abrasers are durable, precision-built instruments designed to perform accelerated wear tests on a variety of specimens. These include solid materials, painted, lacquered, electro-plated surfaces, plastic-coated materials, textiles, metals, leather, rubber and linoleum.

Materials are subjected to the wear action of two abrasive wheels at a known load. This wear action results when the abrasive wheels are rotated in opposite directions by a turntable on which the specimen material is mounted. The abrading wheels travel on the material about a horizontal axis displaced tangentially from the axis of the test material which results in a sliding action. An exclusive feature of the Taber Abraser is an “X” pattern of abrasion, produced by the rotary rub-wear action of the wheels.

The wear pattern formed is that of two intersecting areas or a slightly curved herringbone configuration from the outside to the center, and from the center to the outside of the specimen. An area of 30 square centimeters is subjected to test and a complete circle on the material surface is abraded at all angles of grain or weave.
