The perceived and physical tactility of soft-touch surfaces can play a key role in our assessment of product quality and performance expectation. This report describes methods that can be used to measure a number of key physical attributes of soft-touch materials including surface texture, surface friction, thermal diffusivity and mechanical ‘compressibility’.
