FP-2260 Friction/Peel tester - Coefficient of friction tester (COF)

Friction tester is a kind of testing equipment which is used to measure coefficient of friction (COF) for materials. Basically, there are two kinds of coefficients: static coefficient of friction and kinetic coefficient of friction.

This coefficient of friction tester (COF)/peel tester measures static and kinetic coefficient of friction, as well as run seal strength tests, 180°peel, 90°peel and T-peel tests. The FP-2260 COF testing machine also offers a tensile mode to perform lightweight tensile tests up to 10 kg (22 lbf).

The small, bench-top design makes it lightweight, allowing it to be used in a laboratory or set up out on the production floor for offline testing as needed.

Plastic film, paper, paperboard, adhesives, labels, and packaging materials are ideally tested with the FP-2260.

Replaces the FP225-1, FP-2255 and FP-2250

Thwing-Albert's FP-2260 COF Tester (Coefficient of Friction Tester) / Peel Tester provides more information with less keystrokes and offers capability to run the machine in five languages. It also provides the ability to create, save, and password protect test set ups. The COF test mode can be configured to measure the static and kinetic coefficient of friction as well as slide angle.

The Peel Tester mode can test the seal strength, and peel properties of plastic film, paper, paperboard, adhesives, corrugated/cardboard, labels and packaging materials. The Peel Tester can be configured to perform 180° peel tests, 90° peel tests, and T-peel tests. The Tensile Tester mode can be configured to perform lightweight tensile tests up to 10 kg (22 lbf).
