    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method can be used to simulate a roller/web transport tribosystem and to measure the static and kinetic coefficient of friction of the web/roller couple when sliding occurs between the two. the objective of this test method is to provide users with the web/roller friction information that can be used for process control, design calculations, and for any other function where web/roller friction needs to ne known.

    1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
