New range of adhesion testers

13 February 2013

Elcometer has launched its latest range of pull-off adhesion testers – the Elcometer 506.

These lightweight, portable and easy-to-use adhesion gauges are available in analogue or digital versions and are suitable for measuring the pull-off adhesion of coatings up to 50MPa (7250psi) either on-site or in the laboratory.

The design ensures that a uniform force can be easily applied throughout the range by smoothly rotating the gauge’s crank handle, ensuring repeatable results to an accuracy of ±1%. The quick connect coupling allows the simple attachment of 14.2mm, 20mm or 50mm diameter dollies, which allows coating adhesion testing on flat, curved, thick and thin substrates.
