Taber S-42 Sandpaper Strip

S-42 Sandpaper Strip - An open coat sandpaper that is cut to 12.7 x 160 mm strips and includes a pressure sensitive adhesive to attach the strip to the periphery of CS-0 (S-32) resilient wheels. The S-42 consists of a very fine aluminum oxide grit, graded as 180 ANSI-CAMI which has an average particle size that is approximately 78µm (0.00304 inches).

The paper is an "A" weight which satisfies the paper grammage requirement of 70 - 100 g/m². To maintain the rate of abrasion, the sandpaper strips must be changed after a defined number of test cycles (typically 200 or 500). Applications include high pressure decorative laminates, wood flooring, plastics, furniture surfaces, paints and varnishes.

S-33 Sandpaper Strip - A closed coat sandpaper that is cut to 12.7 x 160mm strips and includes a pressure sensitive adhesive to attach the strip to the periphery of CS-0 (S-32) resilient wheels. The S-33 consists of an extra fine aluminum oxide grit, graded as 360 FEPA which has an average particle size that is approximately 40.5µm (0.00159 inches).

The CS-0 rubber wheel is used in conjunction with abrasive sandpaper strips (S-33 or S-42). It can also be used by itself to test the abrasiveness of pastes.
The CS-5 felt wheel is often used to evaluate the wear resistance of textile fabrics.
The S-35 tungsten carbide wheel incorporates sharp helical teeth cut into the wheel periphery, and should only be used on resilient materials such as rubber or leather.
The S-39 leather wheel is used with the Grit Feeder to evaluate three-body abrasion on specimens.

Specialty - Used for special applications.

For both Calibrase and Calibrade wheels, different grades are furnished to meet varying requirements of abrasive action. The composition of Genuine Taber abrading wheels has been carefully chosen to reproduce normal service wear. The quality and uniformity of these wheels is maintained by continuous inspection sampling and tightly controlled manufacturing processes.

Wheels are sold in pairs, and shipped in tight-lidded containers to prevent damage. Each wheel is labeled "LEFT HAND (or RIGHT HAND)" to assure that the mounting position will be duplicated after the wheels have been removed and later re-installed. For Calibrase and Calibrade wheels, the label is also used to indicate the minimum diameter of the wheels (1.75 inch or 44.45 mm OD). When the wheel is worn to the label, it must be replaced.

Depending on the abradant type and test specimen, the wheel surface may change (i.e. become clogged) due to the transfer of material from the test specimen to the abrading wheel, and must be cleaned at frequent intervals. Click here for information on Refacing Options. As the abrasive coefficient of the wheels can also be altered by oil and other contaminants, handle only the sides of the wheels.

How long a set of Genuine Taber Wheels will last is dependent on the load, surface texture and frictional characteristics of the material being tested and frequency of refacing.

Most published test methods provide sufficient details on which abrasive wheels to use. If you are following a particular standard, please refer to it for the appropriate wheel. If your application is not covered by an established procedure, deciding which abrading wheel is best determined with preliminary testing on the actual material.

The ideal selection criterion is to reproduce, as nearly possible, the wear which the material will be subjected to in actual use. It is important to keep in mind that wear is a complex phenomenon that may not be exactly replicated through an accelerated abrasion test, and the abrasive wheels represent a limited subset of actual contact conditions that material surfaces will be subjected to while in service.

Load references are per arm. By itself, the abraser arm provides a standard load of 250 gram on the wheel. Using the auxiliary weights, standard wheel loads of 500 or 1000 grams can be obtained. Please note, the markings on the auxiliary weights are NOT reflective of the actual mass of the additional weight.

The auxiliary weights are marked with the TOTAL load that will be exerted on the wheel and equals the combined mass of the abraser arm and auxiliary weights. The weight marked 500 gram is actually 250 grams and the weight marked 1000 gram is actually 750 grams.
