secutex elastomers have excellent friction and therefore are very well suited for the use in transport racks.
The coefficient of friction is a very important factor in load securing, it must be proven and known. The value depends on the combination of the two friction partners and cannot be general. The logical consequence is that the coefficient of friction must be tested individually. For this purpose, secutex has a universal testing device, the evaluation is then done on the universal testing machine.
The coefficient of friction is the measure of how high the friction force between two materials is and is stated with the formula symbol “µ”. The friction force depends on many different factors. These would be for example material, temperature, humidity, surface, etc.
