Presto Stantest offers premium quality of Coefficient of Friction Tester for packaging testing. The device is used to determine the coefficient of friction of plastic sheets, laminates, films, papers, and pipes, etc. The testing machine helps to measure the kinetic and static coefficient of friction of the materials when it slides over the material itself or on the other substance under some specific conditions. The coefficient of friction testing is necessary to determine the stacking ability of the plastic films and sheets. This testing strategy helps the manufacturers of plastic industries to prevent accidents due to friction in transporting, loading and packing of the materials. The uneven thickness of the films could result in increased friction, which in turn leads to uneven film strength.
The Presto’s Co-efficient of Friction Tester for packaging works on the basis of standard test method ASTM D-1894 and other related standard test methods. Presto Stantest designs two models of Coefficient of Friction Tester for packaging testing i.e. Digital Model and Computerized model. Co-efficient of friction reveals the degree of abuse that a plastic film successfully endures without damaging the content. The Presto coefficient of friction tester measures the coefficient of sliding friction. It is a simple to use testing device which is designed to measure the friction that exists between two surfaces that are covered with the same kind of material. In some plastic films such as polyethylene and plastics, the properties of slip are generated due to the additives.
The frictional properties of the plastic films and sheets are dependent on the evenness of the rate of motion between two surfaces. The data which is obtained by these testing devices are extremely sensitive to the stage of the film and the condition of the surface.
