Testing Machines Coefficient of Friction Tester Adds Peel Testing Capability

Originally titled 'Coefficient of Friction Tester Adds Peel Testing Capability'

Testing Machines Inc. has added peel testing capabilities to its 32-76e coefficient of friction (COF) tester, which uses advanced digital force signaling and high-speed data acquisition software for precision and repeatability.

Testing Machines Inc. has added peel testing capabilities to its 32-76e coefficient of friction (COF) tester, which uses advanced digital force signaling and high-speed data acquisition software for precision and repeatability.

The new peel-testing capabilities include 180-degree peel and T-peel measurements. The 180-degree Peel Fixture measures the release strength of a label or peeling strength of an adhesive substrate, while the T-Peel Fixture is designed to measure the adhesive force of a heat seal or adhesive-bonded substrate. Other enhancements to the COF/peel tester include a color touchscreen display, GraphMasterPro PC software package, and an intuitive user interface for easy navigation and test storage.
