If you need coefficient of friction values for your engineering calculations, General Magnaplate’s New Friction Calculator can help. Available for both iPhones and Android devices, the new app provides static and dynamic coefficients of friction (COF) for more than 200 pairings of commonly used materials and engineered coatings. Friction Calculator’s materials database is continually updated with new materials and coatings. 

Other features include a Surface Engineering Resources section offering information on understanding coefficient of friction, surface roughness, calculating corrosion rates, wear mechanisms and thread tolerances. In addition, the Friction Engineering Help area enables users to easily contact General Magnaplate’s technical service department to ask for help with your surface enhancement problems.

Search iTunes or Google Play to download the version for your device. A web version of the app for desktop use is available at: www.frictioncalculator.com
