Rubbers are used in a wide number of applications due to its properties and features. On the other hand, the significant use of rubbers in multifarious applications that requires proper and quality testing of the rubbers in order to ensure the quality of the end products. The major property that degrades the quality of the rubbers is a reduction in the materials when it is subjected to continuous abrasion.
Solution for Rubber Industry to Check Abrasion
This problem can be tested by using high-quality of abrasion tester. Presto Stantest understands the requirement of rubber abrasion testing and manufactures premium quality of Din Abrasion Testers. It is the highly efficient solution for Rubber Industry to check abrasion. This tester is designed and manufactured in accordance with DIN standard. It is used for uniformity tests and comparison tests of rubber abrasion. Abrasive paper is wound on the surface of a rotary drum and rubber specimen subjected to load is moved on the abrasive paper. The Lab testing machine is used to measure the amount of rubber reduced in the specimen which occurred due to the abrasion. In this method of testing abrasion, test specimen does not always move on the same path on abrasive paper, but gradually a new portion of the abrasive paper as appears due to rotation of the drum.
