ASTM G76-13 - Jet wear test
ISAF operates a small beam wear test facility that complies with ASTM G76-07. This allows the erosive wear of materials exposed to solids-laden gas streams to be determined. This test stand works with very fine corundum as blasting medium. Here the abrasive is fed into the air stream in precisely dosed quantities and accelerated in the mixing section before it hits the sample, Figure 1.
This test method is suitable for thin coatings and thin samples.
