Friction is the pressure or force that resists the motion of two solid surfaces and material elements when slides against each other. There are several types of frictions such as dry friction, fluid friction, lubricated friction, internal friction and much more. When surfaces of two materials bring in contact with each other, the friction between the two materials converts from kinetic to thermal energy that is work to heat. This process sometimes creates dramatic consequences. For example rubbing two pieces of wood together produces fire.
The friction test needs to be performed by the manufacturers before the process of transportation or while moving the products from one location to another to avoid such consequences. Presto Stantest, one of the renowned manufacturer, supplier, and exporter of testing machine, offers high-quality of friction testing instrument such as Coefficient of friction tester. The instrument is designed as per the standards that are introduced by various standardization authorities such as ASTM, ISO, BIS and much more. The instrument offers highly accurate test results.
