MATERIALS TESTING
 
Automatic adhesion tester with the 6.3 kN general purpose sized testing head.  The testing machine is dimensioned for  measuring of bond strength of all types of paints, thermal sprayed coatings, thin films, concrete coatings, ceramics, etc.  Different test ranges are achieved by using different test element sizes (see table below)   
DFD automatic hydraulic adhesion tester for pull off tests of paint coatings, laminates.  Testing of films, varnishes, materials and concrete

Description 

Portable and simple to use. 
Produces comparable test results both in the laboratory and on site.
Precision gauge with both MPa (N/mm2) and p.s.i. reading.
Simple layout of control panel.
Rate of tensile force increase is infinitely variable between zero MPa/sec up to maximum rate (the rate depends on the size test element used).
110/230V mains power.  Battery power optional.
All AT101 models can have the data logging module built in when new or retro-fitted into existing testing machine.
Testing of coatings on any shaped substrates, e.g. inside and outside pipe surfaces. 
Supplied in solid aluminium case.
