ISO 5470-1

Rubber- or plastics-coated fabrics -Determination of abrasion resistance - Part 1: Taber abrader

What is ISO 5470-1?

ISO 5470-1 specifically refers to the methods of determining the resistance to abrasion of rubber and plastic coatings on fabrics using the Taber abrader. The Taber abrader is a specific type of instrument used for wear testing, which essentially simulates the action of two abrasive wheels being applied to a sample under a specified load. This method is widely used to predict the lifetime of a material or coating by simulating real-life wear conditions.

Why is it important?

In today's competitive industrial landscape, it's paramount for businesses to establish credibility, enhance product durability, and ensure customer satisfaction. For companies dealing with rubber or plastics-coated fabrics, one instrumental way to accomplish these objectives is by complying with ISO 5470-1, an internationally recognized standard for determining abrasion resistance.

It is a benchmark specification outlining the methodology for assessing the resistance to abrasion of rubber and plastic coatings on fabrics. This high-standard assessment tool employs the revered Taber abrader, a leading instrument for wear testing.

By simulating the frictional impact of two abrasive wheels applied to a sample under a specified load, the Taber abrader provides a robust, accurate, and reliable prediction of a material's lifespan, thereby emulating real-world wear conditions.
