Coefficient of Friction – Static

Static COF is a measure of the force required to overcome the friction between two surfaces and start movement. We measure Static COF using a slide angle tester, following TAPPI Test Method T815. It has a bed that lifts at an increasing angle until the sled starts to slide. The slide angle is used to calculate the Static Coefficient of Friction.
