Surface Friction Testing

CTS provides Surface Friction Testing as outlined by ASTM E303

  • ASTM E303 – “Standard Test Method for Measuring Surface Frictional Properties Using the British Pendulum Tester”
    • This test measures frictional properties, skid resistance, and microtextures of surfaces, either in the field or laboratory.
  • To perform this test, CTS uses a device called the British pendulum tester, a dynamic pendulum impact-type tester that measures the amount of energy lost when a rubber slider is propelled over a test surface.
