Friction tester overcomes risk of inconsistencies.
The touch screen and interface allow the Hanatek Advanced Friction Tester to be used as a simple pass/fail QC instrument or as a research tool with full friction force characterisation. It is pre-loaded with ISO/ASTM/TAPPI/ FINAT test methods and has pictorial help screens. Users can create bespoke tests for all methods.
The instrument generates real time force curves showing in detail the friction profile of the tested material. All results can be compared graphically to a previously tested reference. The graph can also be overlaid to help understand batch to batch consistency and quality.
Other tests which can be carried out include 90 deg, 180 deg and T-peel strength, substrate tear strength and blocking testing.
To better simulate the environment in which the end product win be used there is an optional heated measurement platen to enable testing to be done at temperatures up to 110 deg C.
