32-76 Coefficient Friction Tester


Testing Machines Inc., is globally recognized as the leading supplier of Coefficient of friction instrumentation. Our NEW 32-76 COF tester uses advanced digital force signaling and high speed data acquisition software providing unmatched precision and repeatability in COF testing. Improved features include a color touchscreen display and intuitive software user interface for easy navigation and test method storage. Based on the horizontal plane method, coefficient of friction and Slip properties aid in the evaluation of chemicals and additives used to create, monitor or minimize the degree of friction between two contacting test specimens or surfaces.
