Plastic Film Testing Instruments
This Coefficient of Friction Tester (COF) / Peel Tester can measure static and kinetic coefficient of friction as well as run seal strength tests, 180° peel, 90° peel, and T-peel tests. The FP-2260 also offers a tensile test mode to perform lightweight tensile tests up to 10 kg (22 lbf).
Its small bench top design makes the FP-2260 light weight allowing it to be used in a laboratory or setup 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 FP-2255.
The Spencer Impact Attachment was developed for use with Thwing-Albert's Elmendorf Tear Tester.
The Thwing-Albert the dart drop impact tester is an easy-to-use, ergonomically designed instrument used to measure the impact resistance of plastic film, coated paper and other materials utilizing the free falling dart method.
The heated platen allows for testing at elevated temperatures. Ideal for plastic film testing. Its small bench top design makes the FP-2260 light weight allowing it to be used in a laboratory or setup out on the production floor for offline testing as needed.
Temperature range from:
(70F to 350F)
Plastic film, adhesives, labels and packaging materials are ideally tested with the FP-2260 heated platen option.
The Vantage Tensile Tester offers many fixtures for tensile testing, COF and other tests for the plastic film, flexible packaging, food packaging, paper, paperboard, tissue paper, textiles testing, and many other industries. This universal materials testing frame can be setup for many tests when combined with the right grips and fixtures.
