Test Report Results

Akron Rubber Development Laboratory Inc.

Subject: Pico Abrasion testing on two samples. (PO# 97004)
Received: Four dense rubber slabs identified as Barefoot and four sponge vinyl flooring samples unidentified.

PICO ABRASION, ASTM D 2228-88(94), D 792-91
4.5 Kg. load, 80 total revolutions at 1 Hz.
Standard Index: 0.0259

  Barefoot Sponge Viynyl
Density, lbs / ft3 75.6 18.1
Weight Loss after cycles, gross 0.0180 0.0562


1. During the first 10 cycles of the test the weight loss of the Spong Vinyl specimens was more than 5x the weight loss of the Barefoot specimens.

2. The volume loss of the Sponge Vinyl flooring was 15 to 20 times more than the volume loss of dense rubber flooring.
