Range of application

For determining static and dynamic friction coefficients to ISO 8295, ASTM D 1894, ASTM D 2534 and TAPPI T549. To measure the friction behavior between two films a film sheet is laid over the glass plate of the table and fastened in place. A second film sheet is fastened round the sled. During the test the force required to pull the sled is measured.

Advantages/features

post90• test is performed with the materials testing machine into which this device is installed
• testing machine can be used for several types of test, e.g. tensile, tear-growth or puncture tests
• one film fastened to the sled, one film clamped to the glass plate
• film fastened to the sled by clamping (for 316251)or by an adhesive coating on the sled (for 319395)
• glass-plate gripping-system enables rapid clamping of the film
• interchangeable polished-glass table
• various sleds available
• usual applications are in the 10 mN to 50 N force range
