Taber Abrasion Testing

Taber abrasion is an accelerated wear test to determine a materials resistance to abrasion.

Aerofin Laboratories can conduct Taber abrasion testing for you. Taber abrasion can be conducted on a wide range of materials including:

  • Coatings.
  • Plastics.
  • Laminates.
  • Papers.
  • Ceramics.
  • Textiles.
  • Glazing.

Resistance to abrasion is defined as the ability of a material to withstand mechanical action such as rubbing, scrapping or erosion. Abrasion can beĀ evaluated by various means such as:

  • Weight loss,
  • Taber wear index.
  • Volume loss.
  • wear cycles per mil.
  • Depth of wear.

Test Methods include:

ASTM D 4060. BS 5599. ISO 10074. MIL-A-8625


Aerofin Laboratories can evaluate process suitability
and effectiveness for your chosen application.
