What is the Abrasion of the Material

Abrasion resistance of the material, also known as wear resistance, refers to the ability of materials to resist mechanical wear. Taking fabric or leather as an example, the finished product is often subjected to the repeated friction of other objects in the process of use, resulting in the loss and fading of the articles, thus reducing the user experience of the articles and shortening the life of the articles. There are many abrasion test methods, such as Taber abrasion resistance test for plastic material, paper material, leather material and so on, is one of the most common testing methods.

Taber Abrasion Resistance Test Principle

Place the test sample on a rotating platform and the sample is worn by rotating friction motion with two taber abrasion wheels under a certain load. One abrasion wheel rolls outward and the other wheel rolls inward for rubbing sample to form a ring shape of abrasion marks. After a certain number of rub times, observe and evaluate the degree of wear and tear for the sample (Refer to taber abrasion test Wiki if you need more information).

Taber Abrasion Test Produce

Before the Taber abraser test, choose different grinding wheels and loads according to different test materials, and then calculate rub index. The data are shown in the below table.

Types of Material Grinding Wheels model Load
Natural leather H-22 500g/wheel
PU split leather H-22 1000g/ wheel
PU and PVC artificial leather H-22 1000g/ wheel
Textile materials H-18 500g/ wheel

Fix the sample face up on the rotating platform and install the selected grinding wheel on the supporting bar. After selecting the appropriate load, put the support strut down so that the grinding wheel is in contact with the surface of the sample. Start the taber abrasion machine and test it according to the number of rotation times. After the test, take off the sample, check the wear of the sample and record the taber abrasion test results.
