We know that Taber Abraser is widely used and can meet dozens of different test standards. The products in each test standard are different, and different products are required to use different types of grinding wheels during the test. Faced with so many types of grinding wheels, how should we choose?

When we choose the grinding wheel, we must choose the corresponding grinding wheel according to the characteristics of the grinding wheel and the difference of the sample. Please refer to the grinding wheel models and corresponding sample types listed in the table below to help you select the correct grinding wheels.

Wheel Model Applications Characteristics
CS-10 Organic coatings, plastics, textiles, leather and paper products Resilient, mild-medium abrading
CS-10F Safety glazing materials and transparent plastics Resilient, mild abrading designed to operate under loads of 250 or 500 grams
CS-17 Anodized aluminum, powder coatings, ceramics, plastics and enamels Resilient, Compared to the CS-10 wheel, harsher abrasion, operated using loads of 500 or 1000 grams
H-10 Steel and ferrous alloys for resistance to abrasion

Test the effect of hardening and tempering treatment on steel and other ferrous materials

H-18 Rubber (non-tacky), certain woven textile fabrics, coated fabrics

Flexible plastic sheets

Non-resilient , medium coarse abrasive action
H-22 Rubber, linoleum, leather, deep pile fabrics and concrete (such as automobile floor coverings) Non-resilient, coarse abrasion
H-38 Woven and non-woven fabrics, operate with 250 or 500 gram loads Non-resilient, vitrified abrading wheel comprised of fine abrasive particles
CS-0, S32-rubber Wet tests such as determining the relative abrasion of dental pastes, cleaning powders, or similar compounds

Adhesive sandpaper strips can be adhered to the periphery of the CS-0 wheel to evaluate the abrasion resistance of high-pressure decorative laminates and other products.

Resilient, no abrasive particles, mild abrasive
S-42, S-33-sand paper strip


Vitreous and porcelain enamels, paints, metallic coatings, and furniture surfaces Resilient, Medium abrasion
CS5-Felt testing textile fabrics when the service wear requires one fibrous material to rub against another.

Designed to be tested with 250 or 500 gram loads

S35-tungsten carbide Resilient materials such as rubber, linoleum, and leather Non-resilient, very severe abrasion, sharp helical teeth, combine both a cutting and tearing action
