Falling Sand Abrasion Tester (ASTM D 968)

The Falling Sand Abrasion Tester is broadly used to measure the  abrasion resistance of paint, lacquers and other organic coatings…
Abrasion resistance is expressed in terms of the volume of abrasive required to wear through a unit thickness of the coating.

The volume of sand required to obtain total erosion of the coating on an approximate 4 mm Ø area with respect to the thickness of the coating indicates the abrasion resistance.
Consumables: ASTM Ottawa Sand, DIN Sand, or artificial corumdum.
