    Abstract

    Seldom is there any agreement as to what wear actually is or how to measure it. Some feel that the old paint slogan, “Save the surface and you save all,” is applicable to concrete. Certainly, when the surface is disrupted and the aggregate exposed, it is difficult to measure the abrasion resistance of the resulting concrete surface. This is particularly true when means are adopted—and some with merit—to increase the life of the wearing surface through the use of various concrete surface hardeners.
