ABRASION

Taber test:

The most common and accepted test to measure the abrasion resistance is called TABER TEST ( ASTM /1044/ISO 3575), in which a wheel, made of a certain material and  a supporting known mass, is rotated, with friction with a specific number of revolutions over the measured surface. This friction causes wear on the material resulting in a level of haze (opacity) which is proportional to the reduction in the ability of the material to transmit visible light.

 

Test over different materials:

This friction causes ware on the material resulting in a level of haze (opacity) which is proportional to the reduction in the ability of the material to transmit visible light. BRG is highly exposed to direct contact on both inner and outer surfaces during installation and daily operation.It is a minor problem on the outer surface because this is normally made of glass, which is a very hard material and therefore very resistant to abrasion. However, it may be a critical problem on the inner surface in compounds which are made of glass; in this case the resistance to abrasion becomes highly important.

PC HI TECH

PC HI-TECH is an improved single-side coated, polycarbonate sheet, offering excellent abrasion resistance, dimensional stability, impact resistance, optical clarity and complies with the DIN 52305-A-AZ.  It is an outstanding candidate for BRG where PC HI TECH is bonded by means of a PU interlayer or polymers to the glass package, creating a “no fragmentation BRG with improved abrasion and mechanical resistance.  In cooperation with some of the main Polycarbonate producers in the world, the use of this kind of PC results in remarkable benefits in glass production, improving the product performance.

Evolution:

 

PC HI TECH offers scratch and abrasion resistance plus the following features:

  • 3 year warranty.
  • 5% thinner.
  • Glass fragments and Multi-hit ballistic Protection.
  • Improved  resistance to abrasion.
  • Increased durability.        
  • Easy cleaning and handling.
