Modern way to inspect the Abrasion Resistance Strength of Footwear Rubber Soles

Abrasion Resistance Strength of Footwear Rubber Soles


There are numerous methods that are commonly used to measure the abrasion resistance strength of the footwear rubber soles. The technique of abrasion test is totally dependent on the type or quality of the component and its expected usage in the environment. Out of the available testing techniques that are used to measure the abrasion resistance strength of rubber soles, the standard provided by DIN is widely used. The standard helps to test the all potential items that are comprised of the base footwear. The standard helps to determine the wear and tear properties of the Rubber footwear sole. To compute the strength and durability of the material a sample from the footwear that needs to be tested is abraded continuously on a cylindrical drum on which an abrasion paper is duly pasted.

For the manufacturers, those who want to maintain the consistency in footwear quality, Presto Stantest help their customers by offering high-quality Abrasion Testing machine. The instrument is popularly known as DIN abrasion tester. The instrument is capable in offering highly precise test results. The test performed with Presto’s DIN abrasion tester helps to measure the amount of rubber which is reduced due to continuous abrasion. The ration of loss in the volume of the rubber to the actual volume of the rubber is expressed as the percentage of abrasion resistance index.
