Standard Test Method for Abrasion Resistance of Transparent Plastics and Coatings Using the Oscillating Sand Method

Significance and Use

4.1 Plastic materials, when used as transparencies, covers, or enclosures, are subject to wiping, cleaning, or other types of rubbing actions that cause abrasion. It is the intent of this test method to provide a means of estimating the resistance of such materials to this type and degree of abrasion.

Scope

1.1 This test method determines the resistance of transparent plastics and transparent coatings utilized in windows or viewing ports, to surface abrasion using oscillating sand.

1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.2.1 Exception—The inch-pound units in parentheses are provided for information only.
