Coefficient Of Friction of Paper

Coefficient Of Friction of Paper

Coefficient Of Friction of Paper

Does anyone know the coefficient of friction of paper with metal(aluminium)and rubber or any useful websites where I can find it? I have already checked the Marks standard Handbook and many of the other usual sources, but it was all in vain.
Information on the tensile strength of envelope stock paper will also be greatly appreciated.

RE: Coefficient Of Friction of Paper

Ask paper manufacturer(?). Any other ideas?

RE: Coefficient Of Friction of Paper

What kind of paper?
What type of coating?
Machine direction or not?
