TABER ABRASION TESTING TO EVALUATE WEAR CHARACTERISTICS OF COATINGS AND MATERIALS
A typical Taber abrasion test consists of a disk-shaped specimen that is placed in constant contact with abrasive wheelS, using predetermined forces to a specified number of cycles to determine wear. The most commonly used standards for these tests are: ASTM D4060, ASTM F1978-12 and MIL-A-8625.
Taber abrasion is a quick and simple way to measure wear resistance and offer sufficient comparable data at a reasonable price. It gives a side by side comparison of several materials or coatings, so you can evaluate which material has better wear resistance under simulated, accelerated wear conditions.
IMR performs a large variety of physical, mechanical, and chemical testing methods to help manufacturers in the aerospace, transportation, and medical device industries verify material properties for critical applications.
