Lab Measure Slip & Friction Tester


The 32-71 Lab Measure Slip and Friction Tester is designed to precisely determine the friction characteristics of a variety of materials. The instrument removes operator variability from the test procedure with specially designed features to control sled placement rate, orientation/angle and removal.

ASTM D 1894, ASTM D 4521, DIN 53375, ISO 8295, TAPPI T 549, TAPPI T 816
Adhesive and Label Testing, Coating Testing, Corrugated Testing, Film and Foil Testing, Medical Product Testing, Package Testing, Paper and Tissue Testing, Plastic Testing, Rubber and Foam Testing, Surface Property Testing
Coefficient of Friction (CoF) and Slip

The new Windows™-based software features the ability to create user-defined test profiles with built-in ASTM, ISO and TAPPI methods, individual test speed selection for both static and kinetic COF, exporting capabilities of graphs or data to Microsoft Excel® and SPC files, and an enhanced calibration system that verifies existing and new calibration and keeps a log for ISO record-keeping.
