4 Abrasion and wear

Abrasion and wear designate to changes induced by mechanical-tribological stress on materials’ surfaces. Depending on product and application requirements, the abrasion and wear properties of the friction partners are determined in relative motions. In linear (e.g. Crockmeter, Linear Abrasion Tester, Abrex®, VESLIC tester, etc.) as well as rotational (e.g. Taber®, Martindale, Schopper, etc.) load scenarios with application to dry, wet as well as media treated conditions, a variety of different methods are available for testing the abrasion and wear resistance properties.
