Abstract

In the industry, a Taber wear test is commonly employed to assess the wear resistance of coatings, which are applied on a panel of relatively large scales. On the other hand, other wear testing methods, such as ball-on-disc, is preferred in laboratory settings, as they require smaller test specimens and can determine coefficient of friction. In this study, we systematically compare the differences of Taber wear and ball-on disc by evaluating with an electrolessly-deposited Ni-P alloy systems. The Taber wear shows purely abrasive wear, whereas the ball-on-disc test offers a complex blend of wear mechanisms, and provides the coefficient of friction, useful for analyzing a wear loss measurement.
