Coefficient of Friction Test Background

Coefficient of friction is the amount of friction existing between two surfaces. A low value of coefficient of friction means less force is required for sliding to occur. A higher value means more force is required.

Coefficient of friction (COF) will be different depending on the materials that are interacting with each other. Packaging film coefficient of friction (COF) refers to the level of ‘slip’ that the packaging material has when interacting with different parts of packaging machine, conveyor belt or materials.

Controlling coefficient of friction (COF) is important in optimizing performance and avoiding problems in forming, transporting, and storing of packages.
