With the same set of samples, the same machine, and after multiple tests, the abrasion resistance test results are consistent.

High reproducibility

After testing the same set of samples, or different machines of the same model multiple times, the Taber abrasion test results are consistent.

Longer service life

TESTEX Taber abraser is made of stainless steel material, anti-corrosion, and anti-rust.

Easy to use

Loading and unloading of grinding wheels are very simple and fast, with easy replacement of key components, and the abrasion resistance test procedures can be operated by color touch screen, easy and efficient.

DC vacuum nozzle with adjustable height can accommodate different sample thicknesses.

Application of Taber Abrasion Tester TF214

The Taber Abrasion Tester, also named Table Abrasion Machine, is one kind of abrasion testing machine, applicable to test the wear resistance of all kinds of materials, such as fabrics, leather, rubber, paper,  travel cases, carpets, cardboard, clothing, glass, plastic coatings, tiles, metal plating, paints, varnishes, decorative flakes, high-pressure flakes, plastics, resilient floor mats, automotive interiors, etc.

Test Principle of Taber Abrasion Test

The Taber abrasion test specimen is placed on a rotating platform, and the two rolling friction wheels above are subjected to a rotating friction motion with the specimen under a certain load. One friction wheel faces outward and the other friction wheel faces inward, forming a circular wear mark. After a specified number of rubbing cycles, the degree of wear is evaluated by assessing the color loss visually (with a gray card) or by comparing the weight difference of the specimen before and after the test.

Abrasion index calculation formula: weight of abrasion loss/number of test revolutions x 1000

Tips for getting more repeatability of this Taber Abrasion Machine

  1. Refacing the wheels before the test.
  2. Adjust the height of the vacuum pick-up nozzles each time when you change the specimen of sandpaper.
  3. Check the surface of the wheels after a long period of testing.

Test report of Taber Abrasion Test

A test report of the abrasive resistance should contain the following information.

1 Complete detail of the abrasive used

2 The load put on each wheel during the test

3 Details of changes in properties of the tested sample

4 Details of any deviations from the procedure specified and other situations that occur suddenly and affect the accuracy of the result.

Maintenance and Precaution of Use of Taber Abrasion Tester TF214

1 Must place the table abrader on the flat ground.

2 The Taber instrument is not allowed to be moved when it is used.

3 Clean the platform of the machine to keep it clean after the experiment.

4 Ensure the instrument is under a good ventilation environment when working.

5 Select the appropriate power supply and voltage, which should not be excessive to prevent burning the device.

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 the Taber abrasion resistance test for plastic material, paper material, leather material, and so on, which is one of the most common testing methods.



Test Principle of the Taber Abrasion Resistance


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 the 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 Procedure


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


[table id=911 /]


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.



Calibration steps


1 set the counter's rated revolution to 60r/min


2 press the RST key for making the number on the counter become zero


3 press the START key and start the stopwatch timing at the same time


4 when there are 60rpm on the counter, the tester will stop automatically and the stopwatch also stops timing;


5 record the time shown on the stopwatch.


Finally, repeat the above steps from step two to step five. And both times should be within the 60s ± 2s range. We should use the electronic scale to weigh the mass of weight of 250g, 500g, 750g, and 1000g  respectively. And the mass of weight of 250g should be 250g±1g while the mass of weight of 500g should be 500g±2g. The mass of 750g weight should be 750g±2g while the mass of weight of 1000g should be 1000g±2g. If the weight does not meet the requirements, the mass of the weight should increase or reduce, and then be re-weighed after the adjustment until it meets the requirements.
