Friction is a resistive force that prevents two objects from sliding freely against each other. This force called “Friction” opposes motion. The coefficient of friction (μ) is a number that is a ratio of the resistive force divided by the normal force being applied perpendicular to the surfaces.
Low Coefficient of Friction
What is Coefficient of Friction?
An example of this would be a concrete block being slid across a metal work surface. The coefficient of friction would be determined by the force required to move the block divided by the weight of the block as measured with gravity. The more resistive the metal surface or the heavier the block the higher the coefficient of friction (μ) value.
TIVAR® 88 is a product that serves to reduce the resistive force by providing a lower coefficient of friction between the surfaces. Would TIVAR® 88 improve flow in your application? Email us at email@example.com for a project analysis today!
