ASTM D1894

Standard Method for Coefficient of Friction of Plastic Films

Summary

This test method measures the frictional properties of a plastic film or sheeting. The measurement is taken by sliding the test specimen over either itself or another substrate. Data obtained by this test may be affected by age of the test specimen and its condition. This test method can also be undertaken at varying temperatures; please contact us for more information on this.

Furthermore, a correlation between the test results and real-life performance can be established from this test method.

Types of products / materials generally tested in our laboratory:

  • Plastic films
  • Plastic sheeting

*Please Note: The information outlined above is to be used as reference for ASTM D1894 Standard Test Method for Static and Kinetic Coefficients of Friction of Plastic Film and Sheeting. Please refer to the ASTM International website for full details.
