TABER® ABRASER 352 S - Typ 1700

The TABER® ABRASER 352 S (Platform), with its attractive and modern design, is a robust tabletop unit. The precise control and drive elements are located in a sturdy aluminium housing. Easy operation is via LCD touch screen, with functions such as abraser status, visual reference of completed test, cycle/time switching (completed or remaining), programmable pause interval, language selection and much more. The TABER® ABRASER Model 352 S (Type 1700) has one specimen holder for performing abrasion tests.

Purpose and application: Resistance to abrasion is one of the most important mechanical properties of surfaces. Among the methods used to test abrasion resistance, working with the TABER® ABRASER is the most common and widely used method. Numerous national and international standards make explicit reference to this test instrument. The Original TABER® ABRASER can be used to perform abrasion tests on paintwork and other coatings, such as rubber, paper, leather, ceramics, textile fabrics and metals. This device is used in research and development as well as in production and quality control.

Principle of the test: The abrasion is caused by two friction rollers which act with a defined force on the rotating specimen holder to which the specimen is attached. An essential feature of these abrasion tests is the X-shaped grid.

The abrasion behaviour can be determined by the following test methods:

Weight loss method: The material to be tested is subjected to a defined number of cycles of revolution. The abraded portion of the sample is determined by differential weighing.

Visual final test method: The sample is exposed to abrasion until the sample surface becomes visible. The number of rotation cycles is the measure for the abrasion.

Abrasion depth determination: After a specified number of cycles, the abrasion depth is measured with the aid of a micrometer
