Standard Test Method for Abrasion Resistance of Textile Webbing (Hex Bar Method)


1.1 This test method covers the determination of abrasion resistance of textile webbing using a hex bar abrasion tester.

1.1.1 The resistance is expressed as a percentage of retained break strength.

1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as the standard. Within the text, the inch-pound units are shown in parentheses. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with this test method.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
