Thwing Albert’s FP-2255 Friction/Peel Tester
This video shows the FP-2255 friction/peel tester from Thwing Albert. This tester is mainly specified for COF (co-efficient of friction), 180° peel, 90° peel, and T-Peel tests using the 90° and 180° peel fixtures.
The tester’s control panel includes spring clip assembly, crosshead, COF shield-brushed finish, and 180° peel arm parts. A load cell with capacities of 500, 1000, 2000, and 10,000 g and COF sleds of 200, 500, 1000 g and 3lb are also available. The COF testing is carried out by using spring clip assembly for thick materials and sample clamp assembly for thin-sheeted materials. The platen can be heated up to 400°C.
The 180° and 90° peel tests are conducted using a sample plate measuring 12inch x 2-3/8inch.
