Measures static & kinetic friction of sheet material & calculates the coefficient of friction

Dedicated & microprocessor controlled. Heated bed plate option allows hot slip to be measured. Attachments for performing 90°, 180° and T peel.

The Friction/Peel Tester is an extremely versatile instrument for measuring the static and kinetic coefficient of friction as well as peel properties of paper, paperboard, plastic films, adhesives, labels, textiles, flexible packaging materials, coatings & leather.

The FP-2260 utilizes a new multifunctional keypad which allows the user to easily navigate through the multiple menu options. The crosshead and the load cell are adjustable on the FP-2250 to simplify the change between various test set ups. The new system also features an Auto Return/Stop at the end of the test. Now with improved load cell sensitivity and automatic load cell recognition.

One of the best features of the FP-2260 is the new large front panel display screen. The display is 240mm x 64mm and is designed so that the test results can be easily read by the operator. The memory capacity on the FP-2260 can store 127 individual tests for each mode, COF, Peel and Tensile.

The FP-2260 offers optional accessories to perform low capacity tensile and seal strength tests (up to 10 kg/22 lbs), 90° peel, T-Peel, delamination tests, a sled lifting device to meet ISO 15359, and a Heated Platen for testing at elevated temperatures up to 350°.

The FP-2260 EZ-Sled offers a magnetic closure to secure the sample in place. The sled makes the testing of thin films and papers significantly easier & faster. It’s not recommended for use when testing paperboard or thick materials.

Sample Clamps are available for the FP-2260. These vise grips offer a higher capacity of 100N lbf, making it a cost-effective option for tensile, peel and seal strength testing. The grips can be equipped with faces from 25 to 100 millimeters depending on the required industry standards that are to be met. This addition of vise grips creates a solution for customers that need to test at a higher range, but do not have a need for a Universal Testing Machine.

The FP-2260 can transmit raw data and test reports to an external PC via a RS-232 or USB data communication port. We offer MAP-4 software which allows the user to send data to an external PC for additional analysis.
