Coefficient of Friction

ARDL’s Plastics Testing lab offers Coefficient of Friction testing for film or sheeting materials to help in understanding the slip properties of the materials. Whether it is the material sliding over itself or another substance, ARDL can perform the tests at ambient temperature temperatures. The motion between the two surfaces can be performed using a variety of specifications.
