Method of operation: A flat specimen is mounted to a turntable that rotates in the vertical axis. As it does so, the specimen is in contact with the sliding rotation of two abrading wheels, which causes wear. A vacuum system removes loose debris during the test. The resulting abrasion marks appear as crossed arcs in a circular band, covering an area approximately 30 cm2.

Referenced in more than 100 international test standards and specifications
