Coefficient of Friction Tester - Standard

The standard C0055-M1 unit can measure Static COF (peak)  from a resting position and continue to move testing surfaces in a relative motion to give an accurate kinetic COF (dynamic) Result. This model features a stationary sled with a moving plane and also comes with the option of computer software to record data. Peel Testing can also be carried out on this unit.
