Need of Co-Efficient of Friction Tester for Plastic Industry

A coefficient-of-friction (COF) tester measures the friction of a sheet of paper, plastic film or paperboard. It helps to determine the angle of inclination at which the affixed substrate starts to slide or slip against the surface of another substrate of similar or different material.

The test data is based on the surface properties of the material like roughness and surface energy at the time of the measurement and subject to change. These factors restrict to obtain the direct correlation between two surfaces.

The initial movement of the sled is the coefficient of static friction of materials. Mainly this lab testing is useful for transportation and manufacturing in the plastic industry to avoid accidents or losses because of friction. The coefficient of friction is measured to know the degree of abuse that a plastic film can tolerate without harming the content.

Quality testing is ensured by investing in testing machines in the manufacturing unit. Presto Stantest has deep knowledge, practice, and experience in providing various technical solutions in lab testing instruments. To meet the market challenges for the packing industry, the company brings the best packaging laboratory testing instruments with various technical features.
