Ranges of application
Determination of the resistance of elastomers against abrasion for rubber products such as tires, conveyor belts, tubes, shoes soles, floor coatings etc.
DIN ISO 4649, NF ISO 4649, ASTM D 5963
ISO 4649:2010 specifies two methods for the determination of the resistance of rubber to abrasion by means of a rotating cylindrical drum device.
The methods involve determination of the volume loss due to the abrasive action of rubbing a test piece over a specified grade of abrasive sheet.
Method A is for a non-rotating test piece and method B for a rotating test piece. For each method, the result can be reported as a relative volume loss or an abrasion resistance index.
Bareiss offers the following accessories for the abrasion tester
