This European Standard describes two test methods on abrasion resistance of materials using the same abrasion apparatus. The first method describes the determination of the abrasion resistance of protective clothing materials. The second method describes abrasion pre-treatment of these materials where the test specimens are used afterwards in other test methods or for evaluating the remaining protective properties.
The abradant is regarded to be a woven wool fabric for the purposes of this standard.
If other abradants (e.g. glass paper) are used, they should be specified in the requirement standard. Mounting instructions of special abradants should be described in requirement standards.
This European Standard is applicable as a reference standard on abrasion for standards and specifications on protective clothing textile materials.

This International Standard specifies a cut test method, and related calculations, for use on materials and assemblies designed for protective clothing. The test determines resistance to cutting by sharp edges, such as knives, sheet metal parts, swarf, glass, bladed tools and castings.  This test does not provide data on the resistance to penetration by pointed objects such as needles and thorns. The test described in this International Standard is not considered suitable for testing materials made from chain mail and metalplates. The text of this International Standard does not include provisions for the safeguard of the operator.
