Taber Abrasion Tester TF214

4.8 (10 reviews)

Taber Abrasion Tester, which often referred to as “Taber Abraser” or “Taber Abrasion Machine”, is a testing machine to test the wear resistance of fabrics, leather, and more. It complies with ASTM D3884/D3389/D4060, ISO 5470, etc. We provide Taber Abrasion Tester for sale with competitive price. Please contact us for more information about Taber Abrasion Tester for sale price.


It may take months to know the abrasion resistance of a specific material, but that’s too long for applying the new material to a new product, is it possible to get an abrasion resistance testing result in minutes?

Taber abrasion tester from TESTEX is the answer, as a rotary platform abrader, this instrument is designed to acceralate the wearing process of materials, can be used to test the wear resitance of any flat specimen such as textile fabrics, solid materials like transparent plastics, or painted, coated surfaces.

With Taber abrasion tester, labs can easily know the weight, appearance difference after the taber abraser testing, therefor determine how resistant the material or applied coatings are to surface abrasion.


Taber Abrasion Tester is a testing instrument to test the wear resistance of all kinds of structures including fabrics, leather, and rubber, paper, metals, paints, plated surfaces, coated materials, glass, etc.

Taber Abrasion Tester is mainly used the way of rotary grinding, using the different types of friction wheels to rotate the specimen, and then it can detect the result of leather or other materials. Taber Abraser tests the specimen by rotating and applying the required pressure when in contact with the grinding wheel.

Taber Abraser uses the X pattern of abrasion produced by the rotary action of a pair of abrasive wheels. It supplies with a full range of auxiliary weights, specimen holders. The abrasive wheels and wheel refacer are offered on request.

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.

    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.

    [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.

      Q: Can you confirm whether it is dual head, as your catalogue specify it is single head?

      A: The single head written in catalogue is only for reference, we can also do dual head. Please contact us to get more details.


      Q: Do this machine have vacuum system with suction hose?

      A: Yes, it does.


      Q: Can this taber abraser set with speed 72 ± 2 rpm and 60 ±2 rpm?

      A: Yes, the machine is equipped with a rotater to set the speed.


      Q: What is the standard that the Gyration speed be 70 rpm +/- 1rpm follows?

      A: The parameters in the catalog is written with ISO 5470-1, and we can also do with other standard like ASTM MD 3884. Please contact us to get more details.
