Assured Testing Services offers taber testing IAW ASTM D4060. We have multiple machines available to perform ASTM D4060. One of our dual taber machines shown below. ASTM D4060 tests the “Abrasion Resistance of Organic Coatings by the Taber Abraser”.
Assured Testing Services has a variety of wheels to test abrasion resistance IAW ASTM D4060 with some of the most common being CS-10 and CS-17.
The numbers of cycles are typically stated in the governing specification. MIL-A-8625F would be an example. Along with the number of cycles we need to know the gram loads. Typical loads are 250 grams, 500 grams, and 1,000 grams
The sample which is 4”x4” is weighed to the nearest .1 mg before and after testing. After testing the wear index is calculated. ASTM D4060 can be downloaded from the link below:
