ASTM C1243 Abrasion Resistance

ASTM C1243 Resistance to Deep Abrasive Wear of Unglazed Ceramic Tile by Rotating Disc

The ASTM C1243 test method is a standard of the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) that measures the potential resistance to wear of unglazed ceramic tiles for floor applications. This test is one of several components used when assessing durability and not physical appearance. The scope of testing involves abrading the surface of a tile specimen with a rotating disc and an abrasive material. The specimen is rated based on the loss of volume resulting from abrasion.
