Scope

This European Standard describes two test methods on abrasion resistance of materials using the same abrasion apparatus. The first method describes the determination of the abrasion resistance of protective clothing materials. The second method describes abrasion pre-treatment of these materials where the test specimens are used afterwards in other test methods or for evaluating the remaining protective properties.
The abradant is regarded to be a woven wool fabric for the purposes of this standard.
If other abradants (e.g. glass paper) are used, they should be specified in the requirement standard. Mounting instructions of special abradants should be described in requirement standards.
This European Standard is applicable as a reference standard on abrasion for standards and specifications on protective clothing textile materials.
