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 Zenith Czora of Parex Davco on October 31, 2017:
The most common standard method is ASTM D4060 using a Taber Abrasion Tester. Abrasion resistance to ASTM D4060 is usually measured as a weight or a coating thickness loss after a given number of cycles. Each arm, by default, is loaded to apply a 250 g. pressure on each wheel. Depending of the product/specification used, this weight can be increased to 500 or 1000 g. The abrading wheels are available in different grit for a more or less abrasive action.
