We know that it’s a significant investment to buy a quality tribometer. Whether you’re testing a new process or doing a coating test where you only need to take a few sets of measurements it’s very cost effective to rent.

Rental period starts the day after the 925 is delivered to your location and the day the 925 is delivered to shipper for return. The 925 must be returned within 3 days of the end of the rental period. Additional days beyond 3 delivery days will be invoiced as rental days. Shipping from/to Substratum is not included and can be coordinated by Substratum to simplify the rental process.

  • Precision strain gauge
  • Calibrated using NFSI reference tile
  • Internal self-calibration (no annual calibration required, ASM recommends you send back every two years for checkup)
  • Digital display shows measured DCOF
  • Use with ANSI/NFSI B101.3 wet DCOF standard
  • Record and output data for analysis

The patent-pending 925 is the newest tribometer from American Slip Meter. The 925 measures dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF). User pushes handles down to automatically activate DCOF test cycle. The 925 does not move, only the SBR sensor foot.

Use published standards or your own test procedure to accurately measure either dry or wet DCOF of flooring materials, bath tubs, stairs, and ramps. The system is small and portable for both field and lab use. The 925 immediately displays information or exports for analysis.

Use the the ANSI/NFSI B101.3 wet dynamic coefficient of friction test standard, ANSI A326.3 wet/dry DCOF standard, or develop your own test methods. This tribometer is excellent for diagnostic tribometry for field users that are evaluating floor care tools, chemicals, cleaning processes, and materials. It is a great option for those requiring DCOF readings and already have an 825A as well as though that will only be measuring the COF of hard surface flooring.
