VIT 216 - MIE Abrasion Tester

MIE Abrasion Tester, to determine the wear resistance of textiles used for the automobile such
as the interior material made of woven, knit, composite, coated fabrics by rubbing against an
abrasive cloth.
This abrasion tester is mostly used for Renault and Peugeot

Test Range

This tester uses the standard wear fabric to carry on the reciprocating friction on the test fabric surface and causes the wear. It is suitable for checking the friction and wear strength of woven fabrics, knitted fabrics, composite materials, leather coated fabrics, and decorative materials.

Instrument Principle

Clamp one end of the sample on the gripper and the other end is loaded with 2~5kg to ensure that the fabric is flat on the felt plate and does not move. Reciprocating friction tests were carried out on each set of specimens with eccentric linkage mechanism and stopped after the preset test time.

Test Process

1 Install the instrument stable and there is no obvious vibration around it. Adjust the anchor bolt to make the bubble stop at the center of the horizontal bubble, and keep the tester horizontal.

2 Set the temperature to (20±15)℃ and the relative humidity is lower than 85% to ensure that there are no corrosive media and conductive dust in the surrounding environment.

3 Plug the tester into a 220V power supply and turn on the power switch.

4 Press the “Reset” key so that the timer displays “0000”. Set the value on the timer according to the friction time you need. Hold the rubbing head up on the rocker arm with the brace rod.

5 Prepare the specimen according to the standard requirements. First, fix one end of the specimen to the friction table and tighten the handle; fix the other end to the clamp to fasten the specimen. Then press the friction head on the specimen in a naturally drooping state.

6 After removing the cone pin and lowering the brace rod, start to test. When the rubbing table moves back and forth and reaches the set time, the instrument automatically stops.
