I've seen claims of extreme durability for a new concrete floor coating material exposed to heavy foot traffic. Is there a quick test to determine the validity of these claims?

From Adam Backhaut of Volkswagen Group of America on November 22, 2010:
I would recommend a scrub test, or abrasion test would give adequate results for wear on a concrete surface. Both of these test methods are outline in the ASTM guidelines for durability.

From VCBud Jenkins of CSCS on November 18, 2010:
Having formulated many concrete walkway coatings, my favorite test method is to paint stripes of different coatings, including a known industrial control, across a forklift ramp, preferably a downhill one. Note when the different stripes wear away and it quickly gives you an estimate of durability of the test coatings as compared to the control.
