RHOPOINT COMPACT FRICTION TESTER

Friction Tester That Measures Both Static & Dynamic Coefficients Of Friction

A precision friction tester that gives detailed information of the slip characteristics of packaging material. Surface slip is a key factor when printing, erecting or filling packaging materials on an automatic line. Friction parameters help the manufacturer understand how the finish of a blown film or printed carton can influence the feeding and running speed.

Standards:

  • ISO 8295 Plastics – Film and sheeting – Determination of the coefficients of friction
  • ISO 15359 Paper and board – Determination of the static and kinetic coefficients of friction – horizontal plane method
  • TAPPI 549 Coefficients of static and kinetic friction of uncoated writing and printing paper by use of the horizontal plane method
  • ASTM D2534 Standard Test Method for coefficient of kinetic friction for wax coatings

APPLICATIONS:
Cartons | Paper| Plastic Films | Leather | Coatings | Textiles | Label | Foils | Printed Packaging etc.
