ASTM D1894 Coefficient of Friction
The Coefficient of Friction is evaluated by ASTM D1894 test method. Initial and moving friction, or resistance to movement, is calculated when one material is dragged across another material. Static and kinetic coefficients of friction are reported as a result.
Coefficient of Friction (COF) ASTM D1894 is a standard testing method designed to measure the initial and moving friction, or resistance, of one material being dragged across another material. Initial friction is also known as static or starting friction, and moving friction is also known as kinetic friction.
For the ASTM D1894 test, the material specimen is attached to a sled of defined weight. This sled is pulled across another surface at a speed of 150 mm/minute. The force required to start the sled is measured to get the static friction. In addition, the force required to maintain the motion of the sled, that is, kinetic friction is measured.
Square specimens of 64 mm (2.5 inches) are used with a second surface with a fixed dimension of 254 mm × 127 mm (10 × 5 inches).
The static and kinetic coefficient of friction is calculated and reported. The static coefficient of friction is computed by dividing the initial force scale reading by the weight (in grams) of the sled used. Furthermore, the average force reading, obtained during uniform sliding of the surfaces, divided by the sled weight (in grams) gives the kinetic coefficient of friction.
ASTM D1894 is a standard test method used for determining static and kinetic coefficients of friction of plastic film and sheeting.
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 test is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etch solutions used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
