A weighted COF sled with a three-ball self-adjusting sled system is used to measure the coefficient of friction for cans, coated materials, and non-uniform surfaces.
Ideal Applications: coated surfaces, special coatings and non-uniform surfaces including aluminum cans, laminate flooring, and other materials.
Weight: 2000 g
Sample testing procedure for aluminum can coatings:
A self-aligning weighted sled with three contact balls is placed onto the sample that is clamped in place on the coefficient of friction tester and the weight/sled is pulled across the outside body of the can by the moving crosshead to read the COF results.
