Lloyd Instruments have released a film tester, which allows friction, tensile, flexural bending, adhesion and compression tests to be performed on a single machine.
The plastic film tester can be configured for simple manual tests from the console, for a particular type of test, or to run the full suite of test methods using the outstanding Nexygen software. Routine, repetitive testing for CoF or tensile can be set up for routine use by even unfamiliar users.
Conforming to the full range of AS, ASTM, DIN and ISO test methods, the test connectors or load cells can be rapidly interchanged to suit the required sample type.
Test method setup is by a simple keypad and user menu, so tests can be either a simple one touch method, or complex cycling according to the user’s familiarity and requirements. Statistical data including statistical process control (SPC) run charts are available when using the software.
