Taber Abrasion Testing

The rotary platform abrasion tester is a standard instrument that is typically used for evaluating abrasion and wear resistance of certain coating systems.

Testing involves placing a specimen on a turntable platform that rotates at a fixed speed and then applying abrasive wheels at a specified pressure. As the turntable rotates, the wheels are driven by the sample in opposite directions on a horizontal axis which is then offset from the center axis of the sample. The abrading wheels then rub the specimen while a vacuum system removes loose debris during testing.

Resistance to abrasion may be affected by factors including test conditions such as the type of abrasive wheel being used, the mounting pressure or tension between the specimen and wheel, and the type of specimen or finish of the materials being tested.
