The HATE Adhesion Tester (X1003) is one of the most accurate and versatile adhesion testers currently available. It measures the adhesion bond strength of applied coatings with ease and precision.
The adhesion is measured by the tensile pull on a Dolly glued to the coating surface. The force is applied through the centre of the Dolly by a hydraulically loaded pin. This ensures an exactly central point loading of the force.
Adhesion values are recorded by a pressure gauge giving a 1:1 pressure reading. The maximum value achieved at pull-off is recorded by a reset needle that is easily read on the large scale of the pressure gauge.
Connection to the stainless steel Dolly is easily made with a snap-on connector. The pressure gauge is swivel-mounted allowing testing in any position. This is significant as coating breakdown invariably starts at positions that were difficult to reach during surface preparation and application.
Ensures effective quality control with a non-destructive capability. To allow the specification minimum to be proven the Dolly can be removed using the heated Dolly remover supplied. If necessary, the Dolly can be left in place for testing during service as part of a planned maintenance programme.
Complies with International Standards:ISO 16276-1, ISO 4624, ASTM D 4541, and NF T30-606.
Calibration Certificate with traceability to UKAS (for the Adhesion Tester) and PAT Certificate (for the Heated Dolly Remover) are an optional extra, the Certificate is supplied in a paper format.
Supplied in an Industrial Foam-Filled Carrying Case with 5 Flat Dollies, Adhesive, Heated Dolly Remover, Dolly Cleaning Tool and Dolly Plug.
