Abrasion Check
Abrasion tester in compliance with ISO 4649, ASTM D 5963 ( DIN 53 516) standards


Standards the instrument complies with:   
ASTM D5963;   ISO 4649;    

Overview 
The abrasion test gives a comparative evaluation of the resistance to the abrasion of specimens made of vulcanised rubber, plastic and different materials. The abrasion on a standard specimen is obtained through the use of a certified abrasive paper on a rotating drum with a standard test cycle.

Description of the test 
The test allows measuring the volume loss of a cylindrical specimen with 6 mm thickness and 16 mm diameter, which can be obtained by molding or punched from a finished product.
The specimen is inserted into the locking clamp. During the abrasion cycle, the specimen is pressed with a defined force against a rotating drum to which abrasive paper is applied.
The measurement of the volume variation of the specimen after the abrasion cycle is carried out with a millesimal scale (not included in the supply)


Instrument characteristics 
• The Abrasion Check is supplied with weights for the application of 5 N and 10 N vertical force, as requested by the standards.
• The instrument can be set both for tests with or without rotation of the sample.
• The instrument is supplied with an electronic motor controller for precise regulation of the drum’s rotating speed.
• The drum’s release system facilitates replacement of the abrasive paper and cleaning of the instrument.
• The special design of the sample holder with regulation of closure ensures correct holding of the sample.
• The protective front panel ensures the instrument is in compliance with EU safety requirements.



Standard Calibration service for an Abrasion Tester 
The calibration is performed with reference to the requirements of ISO 4649 standard.
The service includes:
• Ordinary maintenance of the instrument
• Calibration of the number of revolutions of the drum during the test
• Calibration of the lateral displacement of the sample
• Calibration of the test time
• Calibration of the vertical force on the sample holder (5N and 10 N)
• Calibration of the abrasiveness of the emery paper with Certified rubber samples (3 tests)
• Issue and e-mail shipment of the Calibration Certificate with traceability to primary standards.
