Coefficient of Friction Fixture (COF)

The 769-3000 fixture is used to measure coefficient of friction (COF).


The 769-3000 Coefficient of Friction (COF) Fixture can be used with both the Vantage Series Tensile Testers and the QC-3A Universal Testing Machine to measure the static and kinetic friction of a material when sliding over itself.

Meet Industry Standards:  ASTM D1894, ASTM D4521, ISO 8295, TAPPI T549, TAPPI T816, and more.

The fixture consists of a horizontal platform and grip adapter. 

OF sled is required but must be ordered separately based on the testing needs.
