Original Press Release:
Tester is Used for Medical Adhesive Friction and Peel Test
i-COFTEK 3500 Friction & Peel Tester is designed to determine static and kinetic coefficient of friction tests of plastic films, sheets, foils, paper, paper board, PP woven bags, fabric style, and metal-material belts for communication cable, conveyor belts and textiles, as well as peel strength test of adhesive laminated products, medical adhesive bandages, release paper and protective films, etc.
A: Prepare test specimens according to specific standards. Based on ISO 8295-1986, 2 specimens measuring 200 mm×80 mm are required for each test. In accordance with ASTM D1894, the size of the test specimen that is to be attached to the plane should be 250 mm×130 mm and the specimen that is to be attached to the sled should be a 120 mm square (if the material of specimen is rigid, it should be a 63.5 mm square). The specimen surface should be flat and should be free of dust, finger prints or any foreign matters which may change the surface characteristics.
B: Mount the test specimen. The connection of load cell and sled should conform to specific standards
C: Set up test parameters, specimen parameters and then start the test.
D: Record the test data and view the test curve. If the test curve is not satisfactory, the test should be abandoned and new test with another specimen should be started.
