See our Abrasion Testing process in action in this video from Face.
A floors ability to resist abrasion is a very important factor. To carry out an abrasion test, eight test locations are marked on the floor using a machined template. Readings are then taken at each of the eight test locations using a digital depth gauge. The accelerated abrasion resistance testing machine is then bolted into place through pre-drilled fixing holes The machine then with its three steel hardened wheels and a combined weight of 65kg then rotates 2850 revolutions plus or minus 10 After the test the machine is removed and the digital depth readings are then taken at each of the eight locations again. The difference between the average two sets of readings gives a measure of the floors abrasion resistance.
