Standard Test Method for Rubber—Property Abrasion Resistance (Rotary Drum Abrader)
|Publication Date:||10 November 1997|
1.1 This test method covers the measurement of abrasion resistance of vulcanized rubbers that are subject to abrasive/frictional wear in actual service. The abrasion resistance is measured by moving a test piece across the surface of an abrasive sheet mounted to a revolving drum and is expressed as volume loss in mm, that is, a smaller number indicates better resistance to abrasion.
1.2 Test results obtained by this test method shall not be assumed to represent the wear behavior of rubber products experienced in actual service.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
