Leather Coefficient of friction Using Tribometer

Leather friction (COF) is quite important for leather since it can be used to characterize properties such as slip resistance, finish and material degradation. For leather used in footwear, the slip resistance must be sufficiently high. Slip resistance can be characterized by observing the static COF and dynamic COF with a Tribometer. COF also determines how much friction is produced when rubbing between two surfaces occur. This can be used to determine the aesthetic quality and durability of the leather finish when applied to clothing, tooling, and upholstery.
