Abrasion Resistance of Glazed Ceramic Tiles - Test Method - BS EN ISO 10545-7:1999


Ceramic tiles. Determination of resistance to surface abrasion for glazed tiles.


For glazed tiles the determination of the abrasion resistance of the glaze is made by rotation of an abrasive load on the surface and assessment of the wear by means of visual comparison of abraded test specimens and non-abraded tiles.

The abrasive load consists of white fused aluminium oxide, de-ionised water and various diameter steel balls.

The apparatus switches off automatically after completion of a preset number of revolutions.
