The CF800-XS Precision Friction Tester determines Static and Kinetic Friction of packaging materials to ASTM, BS, ISO and TAPPI standards.
Accuracy and versatility in testing is vital, and the CF800-XS Precision Friction Tester provides the technology and range of options to deliver for your specific needs. An intelligent controller and touch screen user interface stores multiple settings for later recall and controls settings to ensure calibrated accuracy to international testing standards.
The successful processing of flexible films or paper and board is largely dependent on the correct coating of ‘SLIP’ additives applied to the material. The successful forming of the material requires easy sliding or flow over formers on the packaging machine where at high-speed acute angles can change the direction of flow to produce a tube or pouch. The application of ink on the film will cause the properties of slip to change, therefore the need to measure and control Coefficient of Friction is paramount.
