Caltech India offers BGD 523 Rotational Abrasion Tester. It is commonly referred to as the Taber Abraser (Abrader) or Rotary Platform Dual (Double) Head Tester. It is applicable to determine abrasion resistance performance of various coatings. It is also used to determine abrasion resistance of paper, plastic, textile fabric, decorations, etc.

The principle of abrasion derived by the test sample, turning on a vertical axis, against the sliding rotation of 2 Abrading Wheels. The wheels are driven by the sample in opposite directions about a horizontal axis displaced tangentially from the axis of the sample. One of the abrading wheel rubs the specimen outward toward the periphery and the other wheel, inward to the centre. The area of abrasion from a pattern of crossed arcs of about

The degree of abrasion for the specimen also depends on the load force(500g, 750g or 1000g on each arm)being acted onto the axial of the 2 Arms, which has a load pressure of 250g.

Standards: It confirms to DIN 52347 53109 53754 53799, ISO 5470, ISO 9352, ISO 3573, ISO 4586-2, ISO 7784-2, ASTM C217, ASTM  D1044, ASTM D3389, ASTM D4060, ASTM D5342
