This Original TABER ABRASER enables abrasion testing to be conducted on coated glass. It is suitable to be used for in- process and quality assurance controls and research and development.
Resistance to abrasion is one of the most significant mechanical properties of any surface. The use of the TABER ABRASER is counted among the most commonly used and best known methods for testing durability and resistance to wear.
The wearing action is caused by two abrasive wheels which are applied at a defined pressure to the material sample which has been mounted on a rotating specimen holder. One of the most out- standing features of this testing method is the X-shaped abrasion pattern shown below.The sample is then evaluated visually and with a spectrophotometer
