Determining the Coefficients of Friction (COF) of Films

ISO 8295, ASTM D1894, JIS K 7125, DIN 53375

Determination of the static and dynamic coefficient of friction is particularly interesting for films that are further processed on packaging and printing machines. Coefficients of friction provide information about the processability and the surface structure, which is important for determining the printability of the material.
The static and dynamic coefficient of friction for flexible films can be easily measured on a static testing machine with an additional fixture. This standard test is defined in many standards.
