Surface Abrasion Test

Surface Hardening Abrasion Resistance Testing

Abrasion resistance is an important performance requirement in warehouse and industrial floors. Floors can be exposed to quite aggressive actions from trucks and other equipment.


  • To carry out abrasion test, 8 test locations are marked on the floor using a machined template.
  • Readings are taken at each of the 8 test locations using a digital depth gauge.
  • The accelerated abrasion resistance testing machine is bolted into place through pre-drilled fixing holes.
  • The machine with its 3 steel hardened wheels and a com­bined weight of 65kg then rotates 2850 revolutions plus or minus 10.
  • After the test the machine is removed and the digital depth readings are taken at each of the 8 test locations again.

Result: The difference between the average two sets of read­ings gives a measure of the Floors Abrasion Resistance.
