The wear resistance of materials is investigated on axial tribo testers. A cylindrical test piece with a dimension of Ø 16 x 10 mm is subjected to a
load of 14 MPa and a defined sliding velocity. Wear is determined as weight loss on the
test pieces, depending on travel speed, load reversal time and roughness of the mating surface.
The results make it possible to evaluate materials with respect to the wear behavior of seals in hydraulic applications.
Test Conditions Cylindrical test pieces
(14 N/mm², 0.1 m/s, 100,000 load reversals, room temperature, oil-lubricated)
