Coefficient of Friction Fixture


The G1086 COF fixture is an integral part of a COF measurement system, typically including a motorized test stand and COF gauge. The G1086 can be used for a wide range of materials, ideal for conformance to ASTM D1894 and other relevant standards. Static and kinetic coefficients can be measured using the M5-2-COF gauge.

The fixture includes a large work table with sample clamp, level, 200 g sled, cable, and low-friction pulley. The fixture is directly compatible with the M5-2-COF gauge, ESM303, ESM301, and ESM750 / ESM1500 test stands (optional mounting posts required for ESM750 / ESM1500; see below).


  • Allows for static and kinetic COF measurements
  • Includes 200 g sled and sample clamp
  • Mounts directly to the ESM303 motorized test stands
  • Optional mounting posts for ESM750 and ESM1500 test stands (optional AC1055 mounting plate is required for the test stand)
  • Fixture + Gauge Kit is available (see Ordering Information)


  • Table surface material:
    6061 T6 aluminum
  • Sled material:
    303 SS
  • Maximum sled travel:
    10.5 in (265 mm)
