Wyzenbeek Classic

Wyzenbeek Abrasion Tester

Our four station oscillatory "double-rub" material abrasion tester is used to determine the abrasion resistance of textiles, fabric, vinyl, leather, stitched seams, and other materials.


Each station has individual specimen tension and pad pressure settings. Three station supports are provided, allowing the operator to run 1-4 specimens.


If your machinery requires OSHA or European CE comformity, our Wyzenbeek CE Compliant Abrasion Tester meets these requirements.

The Wyzenbeek Test Method

Individual test specimens cut from the warp and weft are rubbed back and forth using an ACT approved #10 cotton duck fabric, or wire mesh screen as the abradant (Both available from Schap).


Each station holds a specimen taught, utilizing contoured foam pads to apply pressure. The abradant is affixed to the oscillating drum, which abrades the specimens for a prescribed number of cycles.


The end point is reached when two yarn breaks occur or when appreciable wear is reached or when 100,000 double rubs are reached. The samples should be checked every 5,000 double rubs, and when an end point is reached because of failure,


The rater should back up to the previous 5,000 double rub checkpoint as the test result of abrasion resistance. The test results are therefore to be reported in 5,000 double rub increments.
