The abrasimeter allows the determination of the deep abrasion resistance of unglazed ceramic tiles, calibrated according to UNI EN ISO 10545-6.

Instrumental characteristics

The test is carried out by placing the sample on the instrument, so that it is tangent to the rotating steel disk, and then dropping abrasive material between the disk and the sample. After a certain number of turns of the rotating disk, the length of the chord is measured to obtain the volume removed.
