Rubber/sole abrasion machine


What does it test:

It tests the abrasion of rubber/sole in terms of weight loss, considerating also the density of rubber/sole. 

Why is it important:

The sole of footwear is exposed to different surfaces during walking. This causes the abrasion of the sole profile, which can lead to reduction of sole characteristics and higher possibilities for slip or fall of the footwear user. Quality of the rubber/sole should be therefore tested before production and sales.
