Taber® Abrasers: Applicable Abrasion and Related Test Methods
This is a partial list of applicable national and international test methodologies and specifications to which Taber® Abrasers conform and are specific to abrasion, wear, scratch, rub and crock testing in general. Taber® Industries
Each listed ASTM Method has a specific link to the ASTM website, which provides a brief summary, or overview of the method and information for acquiring a copy.
If you do not see a specific method listed please use the CCSi Standards Search Reference page. There you will find links to many of the Standards Development Organizations (SDOs), each of which have a means by which to search their respective websites.
If you have difficulty locating a document, please send an eMail to CCSi and you will be assisted in every way possible!
Also, it is important to note that many U.S. military specifications (MIL), although in print and not withdrawn, are not actively supported by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). It is suggested that the users of MIL specifications research the availability of replacement or parallel methods available from other organizations.
