    The purpose of the abrasion and wear test is to determine the wear resistance of the material. Wear is the phenomenon that two solid surfaces contact each other and make the surface material fall off by friction. According to the causes of wear, it can be classified into adhesive wear, scraping wear, surface fatigue wear and corrosion wear. The reliability information such as wear resistance can be obtained by testing the wear resistance of the product. The manufacturer can improve the product material or design according to the information. Therefore, wear test plays an important role in improving product reliability. As a professional reliability testing organization, T, C&A Lab can conduct abrasion tests for various products in accordance with ISO, ASTM and other standards.
