Abrasion Testing Instruments

Wet Abrasion Tests

wet_abrasion.jpgThe Taber Abraser (Abrader) can be used to determine the effect of absorbed and / or surface moisture on abrasion resistance.  To accomplish this, the E140-75 Rimmed Specimen Holderis utilized in place of the standard holder.  This holder has a 9.53 mm raised rim for retaining liquids during a test.  A rubber pad is adhered to the table to prevent specimens from slipping during the test.

To prevent splash over on the instrument, use only a sufficient amount of liquid to cover the specimen.  Specimens may be up to 140mm diameter.  Note, the vacuum is not used when conducting wet abrasion tests.
