Co-Efficient of Friction / Slip

The successful processing of flexible films or paper and board is largely dependent on the correct coating of ‘SLIP’ additives applied to the material. The successful forming of the material requires easy sliding or flow over formers on the packaging machine where at high speed acute angles can change the direction of flow to produce a tube or pouch. The application of ink on the film, will cause the properties of slip to change, therefore the need to measure and control Coefficient of Friction is paramount.

Applicable to all methods of product packaging machines including: Over wrap, H.F.F.S. and V.F.F.S. Slip measurement of material against material with values between 0 and 1, Static and Dynamic.
