Coated Fabrics Abrasion Resistance ASTM D3389

Coated Fabrics Abrasion Resistance ASTM D3389

ASTM D3389 determines the wear resistance of fabrics coated with rubber or plastics to abrasion. This standard test method uses a rotary platform, double-head abrader for evaluation of abrasion resistance of coated fabrics.


    ASTM D3389 test is used for determining the abrasion resistance of fabrics coated with plastics or rubber in end-use performance conditions. This test has two methods: Method A for abrasion to endpoint and Method B for abrasion for a specified number of cycles with determining mass loss.

    Test Procedure:

    In the ASTM D3389 test, firstly the original weight of the test sample is measured, then the sample is mounted on an abrasion tester. A load stated by ASTM D3389 is placed on the top of the abrader wheel and then the wheel is allowed to spin for a stated number of revolutions. Various abrading wheels are run and the final weight is taken. The wheel and load can be regulated for harder and softer materials. 

    Sample size:

    The test samples are cut approximately 100 mm (21.5 inches) in diameter. The hole of 6 mm (0.25 inches) is cut in the center of the sample. 


    Results are expressed by changes in weight loss in mg/number of cycles.
