Taber abrasion test

Hi everybody,

I have some resistance to abrasion data on a protective film that I'm planning to use. I wanted to compare those data with the abrasion resistance of mild steel, aluminium, etc...

Does anybody knows where I could find those kind of material properties for common metals?

Thank you!

A material is abraded when its surface is either

1) deformed or 2) sheared off.

I would just check yield strengths , or

you might even use a value between yield and ultimate for materials of interest.

Yes i agree, but I'm looking to compare Taber abrasion results of different material. I have the taber abrasion resistance of a polyurethane film that I'm planning to use to reduce the wear on a polymer part. The previous "generation" of this part was made of steel... so this is why i wanted to compare the wear resistance of the polymer part with the film to the original resistance of the steel part.

Thank you

Before you get real pumped up over the polyurethane, you might want to check its friction coefficient in your application.
