Abrasion Tester Ranges of application

Determination of the resistance of elastomers against abrasion for rubber products such as tire, conveyor belt, tube, shoes, floor coatings, etc.  


ISO 4649:2010 specifies two methods for the determination of the resistance of rubber to abrasion by means of a rotating cylindrical drum device.

The methods involve determination of the volume loss due to the abrasive action of rubbing a test piece over a specified grade of abrasive sheet.

Method A is for a non-rotating test piece and method B for a rotating test piece. For each method, the result can be reported as a relative volume loss or an abrasion resistance index.

The test is made on materials which wear off or abrade, like e.g. tyres, belts, conveyor belts, shoe soles. Machine frame with drive system and specimen holder, abrasion drum, metal housing, electric motor for rotation of the drum and the specimen holder. 

Abrasion tester equipment:

Abrasion tester with plexiglas cover and integrated weight of 2,5 N additional loading weights of 2,5 N and 5,0 N 100-240 VAC 50/60 Hz, 1A.
