Mechanical tests

Adherence of coatings

Resistance test for the adherence of coatings with their substrate.

Cross cut adhesion tester with spare knife ref. CC 1000

According to : ISO 2409, DIN 53151, ASTM D3359

Testing method allowing to evaluate the adherence of paint or a coating.
The principle consists in carrying out a cross cut by making  parallel and perpendicular incisions in the coating. The incisions must penetrate to the substrate.

  • Blade holder with 8 cutting edges.
  • Teeth distance : 1 / 1.5 / 2 or 3 mm.
  • Number of teeth : 6 or 11 teeth.
  • Supplied in a case.

Pull-off adhesion tester ref. PosiTest AT

The PosiTest AT measures the adherence of coatings by measuring the force required to pull a specified test diameter of coating away from its substrate.
The tester uses hydraulic pressure. The pressure is displayed in MPa or PSI on a precision digital indicator.

  • Adhesion strength : 0 - 20 MPa ( 0 - 3000 PSI).
  • Aluminum dollies, diameter 20 mm (10, 14 and 50 mm in option).
  • Large LCD.
  • Adjustable pull rate (MPa/s or PSI/s).
  • Easily select dolly sizes, change measurement units with the touch of a button.
  • Internal memory stores 200 pulls : maximum pull-off pressure and rate of pull.
  • In option : PosiSoft software for downloading and analysing to a computer.
  • Also available in automatic model

Automatic pull off adhesion tester Positest AT automatique

According to : ISO 4624, ASTM D4541

The new PosiTest AT measures the adherence of coatings by measuring the force required to pull a specified test diameter of coating away from its substrate.
The tester uses automatic hydraulic pressure. The pressure is displayed in MPa or PSI on a precision digital indicator.

  • Adhesion strength : 0 - 20 MPa ( 0 - 3000 PSI).
  • Aluminum dollies, diameter 20 mm (10, 14 and 50 mm in option).
  • Large LCD.
  • Adjustable pull rate (MPa/s or PSI/s).
  • Easily select dolly sizes, change measurement units with the touch of a button.
  • Internal memory stores 200 pulls : maximum pull-off pressure and rate of pull.
  • In option : PosiSoft software for downloading and analysing to a computer.
  • Also available in manual model
