Top Benefits of Using Co-Efficient of Friction Tester in Plastic Industry

Top Benefits of Using Co-Efficient of Friction Tester in Plastic Industry

The coefficient of friction is one of the widely used properties of packaging material that will help you to determine the amount of force required to transfer the material. This property of materials will depend on the interaction between two materials when they are in contact. Different types of plastic materials have different coefficients of friction. Thus, you need the right testing material to determine the value of this property of materials. Thus, the Presto coefficient of friction tester is one of the top-selling testing instruments that will help you determine the frictional characteristics of the material. The digital cum computerized model of this testing machine will help you measure the sliding friction of materials like plastic films and sheets when they slide over other substances at specified test conditions.

Here in this article, we are going to discuss the top 5 benefits you will get with the use of coefficient of friction tester from Presto Testing Instruments. So, let us get started!

Introduction about co-efficient of friction tester

The Presto coefficient of friction tester is one of the highly used testing instruments that will help you determine the surface-based properties of the material like plastics, flexible packaging films, sheets, etc. This test can be done under specified testing conditions to help you in the measurement of static and kinetic coefficient of friction. This laboratory testing instrument from Presto will help to reveal the stackability of plastic films. When there will be an uneven thickness of flexible films, then it will lead to uneven film strength. Thus, you should determine the degree of pressure the plastic film can sustain without damage with the help of this lab testing equipment. You can also read about the use of co-efficient of friction tester in the packaging and plastic industry.

Top 5 benefits of using co-efficient of friction tester from Presto

As we have discussed above that the co-efficient of friction is determined as the force to move two surfaces against each other divided by the force that holds them together. Thus, you can easily determine whether the material is best suited for grip requirements or not with the use of this amazing lab testing equipment. Here we have listed the top 3 benefits you will get with the use of this testing machine.

  • This lab testing instrument from Presto has been equipped with advanced features that will help you to view the value of the coefficient of friction for different materials easily.
  • There will be no chance of slippage of the specimen when you make use of this testing machine from Presto. You can tighten the specimen uniformly using fly screws without any loops.
  • You can easily determine the pass/fail criteria of the results and easily view 10 sample reports in one report.
  • This testing instrument has been made in accordance with testing standards like ASTM D 202, ASTM D 4918, ASTM D 1894, ISO 8295, and TAPPI T 815. So, you will get highly accurate testing results.
  • You can even tabulate the data in excel format. 
  • It has a microprocessor-based display to view highly accurate testing results.

These are the top 5 benefits you will get with the use of Presto co-efficient of friction tester digital cum computerized model. You can also give us a call at +91 9210903903 or email us at [email protected]. We will provide you detail information about this testing equipment.
