One of the best tests for determining the stacking ability of plastic films is the Coefficient of Friction test. It helps to reduce mishaps caused by friction in packaging, shipping, loading, materials, and other areas. Presto has come up with one of the highly effective testing instruments known as co-efficient of friction tester that helps to measure the stacking ability of the plastic films. Manufacturers working in the plastic film industry will make use of this lab testing instrument that will help you to determine the static and dynamic friction of plastic films.
Here we will discuss the importance of static and dynamic friction testers in the packaging industry. So, let us get started!
The COF test is considered to be the essential test conducted in the plastic film manufacturing industry to know about the frictional characteristics of the materials with ease. This lab testing equipment gives processors the ability to optimize performance and avoid problems informing, transporting, and storing packages. We at Presto offer two models of this lab testing instrument known as digital co-efficient of friction tester and digital cum computerized co-efficient of friction tester. These models are different in properties and offer an accurate value starting and sliding friction of plastic films and sheets when sliding over itself or other substances at specified test conditions.
The coefficient of friction illustrates how easily plastic films may be stacked. Friction can be caused by a difference in film thickness, which leads to a difference in film strength. The coefficient of friction tester determines how much stress a plastic film can take without harming its contents.
To perform the test with the help of this lab testing instrument, you need to prepare the sample first. Once you prepare it efficiently, then you need to place it accurately on this lab testing equipment.
After following all the instructions for placement and preparation of the testing sample, you can take the test with the help of this lab testing instrument. Now, let us focus on the features and technical specifications of it.
The coefficient of friction reflects how well plastic films stack. Friction can be caused by a difference in film thickness, which leads to a difference in film strength. The coefficient of friction tester determines how much stress a plastic film can take without harming its contents. Below we have discussed the features of the co-efficient of friction tester digital model.
· Clamps are provided to attach samples on the glass slab.
