Standard Operating Procedure - Din Abrasion Tester

Standard Operating Procedure - Din Abrasion Tester

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.

Operating the Device using Standard Operating Procedure

The abrasion resistance of the materials can be determined by operating the device in highly effective manner. To perform the tests as per the standard operating procedure as mentioned in the standards, follow the steps below:

  • Fit the sample cutting die to prepare the sample. The sample diameter will be 16 mm.
  • Weigh the sample before testing. This would be the initial weight of the sample.
  • Now fit the sample in the DIN Abrasion sample holder.
  • Switch ON the mains supply.
  • The sample fitted in the die holder moves in a left and right direction through a rocker switch provided for the movement along the length of the drum.
  • On moving from left to right, the drum takes 84 revolutions.
  • Thus on completion of one cycle, remove the sample and check the weight of the sample.
  • After the sample has been tested, note the weight of the sample. This would be the final weight.
  • The difference between the initial and the final weight gives the loss.

Presto’s Din Abrasion Tester is the best choice to test the resistance of the rubbers to abrasion.
