Abrasion

Abrasion

 

secutex PU materials have excellent abrasion resistance and are therefore well qualified for the use in rough areas (steel industry, concrete etc.). The abrasion is caused by mechanical stress, for example friction, and usually produces very small particles (dust).

A purely mechanical abrasion is caused by parallel sliding of two surfaces against each other, this is simulated in the standardized abrasion test. In this test, the polyurethane sample is subjected to real abrasion stress, and the time taken until destruction allows conclusions to be drawn about its abrasion resistance.
