Rubber, vulcanized or thermoplastic - Abrasion testing - Guidance
|Publication Date:||15 February 2015|
|ICS Code (Rubber):||83.060|
This International Standard provides guidance on the determination of the abrasion resistance of vulcanized and thermoplastic rubbers. It covers both solid and loose abrasives.
The guidelines given are intended to assist in the selection of an appropriate test method and appropriate test conditions for evaluating a material and assessing its suitability for a product subject to abrasion. Factors influencing the correlation between laboratory abrasion testing and product performance are considered, but this International Standard is not concerned with wear tests developed for specific finished rubber products, for example, trailer tests for tyres.
