Compact CFT Friction Tester

Versatile Instrument • Repeatable Measurements • Easy to Use

ASTM D1894, ISO 8295, ISO 15359, ASTM D2534, TAPPI T549

CFT • Static and dynamic coefficient of friction
• Fast, repeatable measurements
• Compliant to multiple standards

The Compact Friction Tester provides 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. In addition to these values the CFT produces detailed force graphs that can be printed to date / time stamped label (optional extra).

Measuring Friction

top
  • The CFT measures both static and dynamic coefficients of friction.
  • Static Friction: The initial force required to make two surfaces slip against each other.
  • Dynamic Friction: The ongoing force required to maintain movement between two surfaces.
  • How is friction measured using the CFT? A sample of 2.5" x 2.5" (63.5mm x 63.5mm) with a weight acting over the entire surface area is moved over another sample at a given speed. Static and dynamic COF are
    automatically calculated and displayed on screen.
  • This is typically a face to face test.
  • Exact test parameters are specified in ASTM D1894, ISO 8295, ISO 15359, ASTM D2534, TAPPI T549.
