ElastAbrasion at India Rubber Expo 2017

11 January 2017


We will be joining our partners for rubber testing in India – Vaibhavi International Trading House, to exhibit our ElastAbrasion elastomeric abrasion tester at the India Rubber Expo 2017 in Chennai. 

Based at Stall B37B at the Chennai Trade Centre, an ElastAbrasion will be on display and demonstrated for visitors from around the world. We designed and developed this precision engineered instrument in our headquarters in the UK to determine the resistance to frictional loss of elastomer products.

The designers at James Heal used their expertise and understanding of abrasion testing to develop a technology solution that reflects, with a high level of accuracy, the true multidirectional motion and real life scenario of a vehicle. It offers significant levels of authenticity, accuracy, productivity and cost effectiveness combined with safety and ease of use. 

The key highlight features of ElastAbrasion include four test stations which allow users to test samples simultaneously to increased productivity, and the expertly designed hinged top-plate also facilitates easy access to the test stations for easy set-up and test management. 


From Thursday 19th to Saturday 21st January, visitors to the exhibition are welcomed to the stand to experience the ElastAbrasion for themselves. Those with an interest in reducing cost per test and operator safety are encouraged to find out how this instrument could be of benefit to them.
