  • The FX-7100 F/W Friction Tester is a proven tool for measuring nominal (Kinetic) and peak (Static) friction values simultaneously
    • Comes with a Force Gauge that displays the calculated Static and Kinetic COF values directly on the gauge display, without the need to add software for calculations
    • Has 1000 grams force capacity
    • Rugged and less likely to get damaged than lower capacity force gauges, yet offers same accuracy and resolution
    • It has a Digital Console Display showing measured kinetic and static COF values
    • Meets ASTM and TAPPI
    • Meets specifications of ASTM D1894 Standard Test Method for Static and Kinetic Coefficients of Friction of Plastic Film
    • Fixed-sled design with moving table speed of 6 inches per minute
  • The FX-7100 VSC Friction / Peel / Seal Tester is a proven tool for measuring Kinetic and Static COF values, as well as Peel and Seal force measurement
    • Comes with a 1000 gram Force Gauge that displays calculated Static and Kinetic COF values
    • Includes second Sled with integral mechanical grip and second weighted-Table with integral mechanical grip for optional dual-purpose testing capability
    • Add a second force gauge (optional) in 2 kg, 5 kg, or 10 kg for peel and seal force measurement using the second provided Sled and Table
    • Meets ASTM and TAPPI
    • Fixed-sled design with variable-speed moving table with speed range from 1 to 20 ipm
    • Cutting templates available to reduce sample preparation times
    • Calibration tools available for in-house system calibration
