ABR 3000 Rubber Abrasion Tester

The ABR 3000 abrasion tester is the simplest and safest way to determine the abrasion resistance of rubber, or frictional loss of any elastomer over a predefined distance. The rubber abrasion test is one of the most important and widely used tests for simulating a rubber product’s abrasive exposure in its end environment. Fixed into a quick clamp sample holder, the test specimen is precisely guided across the rotational drum. Upon test completion, sample weight is taken to compare the loss factor.
