H-10 Calibrade - A non-resilient, vitrified wheel designed to evaluate steel and ferrous alloys for resistance to abrasion. It has also been used to test the effect of hardening and tempering treatment on steel and other ferrous materials.
H-18 Calibrade - This commonly used non-resilient wheel provides a medium coarse abrasive action. It is most often used to evaluate resilient materials such as rubber (non-tacky), certain woven textile fabrics, coated fabrics, and flexible plastic sheets.
H-22 Calibrade - The H-22 wheel produces a coarse abrasion. It has been used to test rubber, linoleum, leather, deep pile fabrics (such as automobile floor coverings) and concrete.
H-38 Calibrade - A non-resilient, vitrified abrading wheel comprised of fine abrasive particles. Designed to operate with 250 or 500 gram loads, the principal use of this wheel is to test woven and non-woven fabrics. Must be refaced using the Taber Wheel Refacer and multi-point diamond tool.
Calibrade wheels do not have an expiration period.

CS-8 Calibrase - A resilient wheel that offers a very mild abrading action, designed to operate under loads of 250 or 500 grams. Reface with the S-11 refacing disc.
CS-10F Calibrase - A resilient wheel that offers a mild abrading action, designed to operate under loads of 250 or 500 grams. The CS-10F is typically used to test materials such as safety glazing materials and transparent plastics, and should be refaced with the ST-11 refacing stone.
CS-10 Calibrase - This resilient wheel offers a mild - medium abrading action like that of normal handling, cleaning, and polishing. This popular wheel has been used to evaluate a variety of materials including organic coatings, plastics, textiles, leather and paper products. Reface with the S-11 refacing disc.
CS-10P Calibrase - The abrasion rate is the same as the CS-10, but this wheel has been engineered so the wheel surface does not load when testing paper products. Intended for tests of short duration (e.g. 100 cycles), with refacing after every tenth test.
CS-10W Calibrase - This wheel is the same as the CS-10 but white, to eliminate any color transfer from the wheel to the specimen.
CS-17 Calibrase - Compared to the CS-10 wheel, the CS-17 produces a harsher abrasion. Normally operated using loads of 500 or 1000 grams, this wheel is useful for testing materials such as anodized aluminum, powder coatings, ceramics, plastics and enamels. Reface with the S-11 refacing disc.
