Abrasion Resistance of Coatings ASTM F1978

Normative Reference  

ASTM F1978: Standard Test Method for Measuring Abrasion Resistance of Metallic Thermal Spray Coatings by Using the Taber Abraser.

This test method quantifies the abrasion resistance of metallic coatings produced by thermal spray processes on flat metallic surfaces. It is intended as a means of characterizing coatings used on surgical implants. It uses the Taber® Abraser, which generates a combination of rolling and rubbing to cause wear to the coating surface. Wear is quantified as cumulative mass loss. A typical test runs up to 100 cycles at 6 samples.

Due to the flexibility of the test set-up other materials such as decking, coatings and films can be investigated.
