Coefficient of Friction Tester

COF Tester is used for the measurement of coefficient friction of materials. For packaging testing, two kinds of friction are available. Some materials such as plastic, films, paper etc are used for the determination of their coefficient friction. Before starting, Let us discuss what is the Coefficient of Friction.

The coefficient of friction is a value that helps in determining the connection between two objects. 

Moreover, in Physics, it is also used as a value for determining the normal force of a material. 

The coefficient of Friction is based on static or dynamic value.

The coefficient of friction is a dimensionless property that doesn’t have any unit. Moreover, it is also a scalar quantity.

The coefficient of friction depends on the objects that cause friction, therefore lab testing equipment is used to determine the value of the friction on different materials. Several people are confused that the value of friction is limited to the values between zero and one. It means that normal force is less than friction force.

So, for determining the value of friction on different devices, you should try the Coefficient of Friction tester manufactured by Effective Lab India. You can easily get it from Effective Lab India at an affordable price.

COF Tester Working Procedure

The coefficient of friction tester is used for the measurement of frictional force between two surfaces. It helps in determining the stickiness and slipperiness of a material. By applying a known force and measuring the resulting friction, it gives us valuable information about the material’s characteristics. It is a useful tool for the packaging, automotive and manufacturing industries.
