Brookfield Engineering introduces TA-SFJ Sliding Friction Jig to Measure Coefficient of Friction

Brookfield Engineering introduces the TA-SFJ Sliding Friction Jig which measures the coefficient of friction (COF) for the Brookfield CT3 Texture Analyzer between two materials by sliding them against each other.

One material is affixed to the base plate of the test fixture while the other material is wrapped around a weight which is then pulled across the first material at constant speed.

The test apparatus utilizes the Brookfield CT3 Tester to pull the weight in a horizontal direction so that the sliding friction between the two materials is measured accurately over a distance that is sufficient to verify steady state behavior.

The TA-SFJ Sliding Friction Jig is used to measure tactile qualities like smoothness, slipperiness or stickiness. It is ideal for a wide variety of applications including: lubricants and grease, personal care products and many types of surfaces and coatings.

The Brookfield CT3 Tester is the best value in a stand-alone instrument for physical testing. It combines simplicity of operation with expanded test method capability and operates in both compression and tension modes.

TexturePro CT software enables the operator to automate their test procedures and generate valuable analytical data. For additional information about Brookfield’s CT3 Texture Tester and the TA-SFJ Sliding Friction Jig, visit https://www.azom.com/ads/abmc.aspx?b=11468.
