– Coefficient of Friction (COF) Tester conforming to ASTM D 1894
“Standard Test Method for Static and Kinetic Coefficients of Friction of Plastic Film and Sheeting”.
– The slip-resistant weight enables efficient testing with no need of fixing the film on the weight.
– Both coefficient of static friction and kinetic friction can be calculated by the included software at one measurement.
Hold 1 piece of large film and put another film (size: 63.5mm*63.5mm) on it.
Put the weight on the 63.5mm*63.5mm film.
Pull the weight by the force gauge at uniform speed and measure the friction force.
The included software automatically calculates the coefficient of static friction and kinetic friction.
