In this application note, the Nanovea Tribometer is used to measure the coefficient of friction between a 6mm teflon ball (typically of low COF value) and a plastic tube. Two different tests are recorded, one without any lubricant and one with the use of lubricant, in order to show the changes in COF within the same tube.
