TG19 and TG35 Coefficient of Sliding Friction Fixture

These fixtures consist of a horizontal flat bed incorporating a suitable clamping device and a sled. The underside of the sled has a layer of smooth-faced foam rubber.

Capacity
100 N, 22.5 lbf

Packaging
Includes fixture, clamping device and sled

Applications
Used to determine the static and kinetic coefficients of friction of plastic film and paper when sliding the specimen over itself under controlled test conditions. A sheet of the specimen is clamped securely to the horizontal bed and another sample of the specimen is clamped to the underside of the sled.

This measures the force required to overcome the frictional resistance between the two imposed surfaces, when one surface is moved relative to the other along their plane of contact. The static coefficient of friction is determined by the force required to overcome the initial resistance between the two surfaces. The kinetic coefficient of friction is determined from the subsequent force when continuously sliding at a constant rate.
