Introduction

There are different methods for determination of the abrasion resistance of a material; and one of the methods is resistance-to-wear through abrasive wheels. The progressive fall of material from operating surface of a coated material or plastic resulting from the scratching action or cutting action of the abrasive wheel. The key principle of this test is: two abrasive wheels are practiced to the specimen of test with a specified load. After rotation of the specimen of test through a specified number of revolutions, the obtained wear is assessed by a suitable procedure (e.g. mass loss / change in optical properties.)

TEXCARE Taber Type Abrasion Resistance Tester is made on a strong metallic base plate and there is a test specimen support disc, which is fixed & flat to its driving shaft backed by two ball bearings. The disc rotates with the support of a motor & gearbox. And the number of rotations is regulated by a four digit preset digital counter. Supported by two symmetrical arms there are two abrasive wheels, and these are oscillated freely about a horizontal axis. Through the two ball bearings on each wheel, the wheels rotates freely. There are a number of counter weights for employing the force on the specimen of test at the time of testing. The mounting wheel has specified dimensions and cylindrical shape. For the removal of wear debris, there is a vacuum arrangement including two exhaust nozzles above wear zone of test-specimen. All the parts of the instruments are powder coated, painted or chrome platted to ensure good corrosion resistance and long life of the instruments.
