Standard Guide for
Abrasion Resistance of Textile Fabrics (Uniform Abrasion)1

This standard is issued under the fixed designation D 4158; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of the last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.

1. Scope

1.1 This guide covers the determination of the resistance to
abrasion of a wide range of textile materials using the uniform
abrasion testing instrument. Fabrics of all types including
carpets, garments, and nonwovens may be tested under this
NOTE 1—Other procedures for measuring the abrasion resistance of
textile fabrics are given in Test Methods D 3884, D 3885, D 3886,
D 4157, D 4966, and AATCC Test Method 93.

1.1.1 Provisions are provided for testing specimens in dry
and wet conditions. Four options for evaluation are included:
Option 1—Fabric Rupture
Option 2—Mass Loss
Option 3—Thickness Loss
Option 4—Breaking Strength Loss

1.1.2 Provision is provided for testing specimens in the wet

1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units
are to be regarded separately as the standard. Within the text,
the inch-pound units are shown in parentheses. The values
stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore,
each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance
with the specification.

1.3 This guide does not purport to address all of the safety
concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility
of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and
health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory
limitations prior to use.
