Elcometer 3086 Motorised Pencil Hardness Tester

Product Description

Elcometer 3086 Motorised Pencil Hardness Tester

Traditional pencil hardness testers can be limited in their reproducibility and repeatability by two key factors; the uniformity of the carriage speed and the variation of the applied force by the user as the manual tester is moved across the coating. The Elcometer 3086 Motorised Pencil Hardness Tester, using the same test methods and principles as the Elcometer 501 Pencil Hardness Tester, removes both of these variables by being fully independent.

The internal motor drives the unit at a constant, uniform speed across the coated surface, exerting a fixed, user determined force between 0-10N.

Elcometer 501 Pencil Hardness Tester

Product Description

elcometer-501-pencil-hardness-tester-200

The Elcometer 501 Pencil Hardness Tester, also referred to as the Wolff-Wilborn test, uses the varying hardness values of graphite pencils to evaluate a coating’s hardness. The Elcometer 501 Pencil Hardness Tester has been designed to ensure that the cylindrical pencil lead is maintained at a constant angle of 45° and exerts a force of 7.5N (1.68lbF).  The pencil lead, prepared beforehand using the special sharpener and abrasive paper, is inserted into the Elcometer 501 hardness tester and pushed over the smooth, flat coated surface. The lowest hardness value of the pencil which marks the coating determines the coating’s hardness rating. Read More

Elcometer 3080 Pencil Hardness Tester – Hardness Pencils

Product Description

elcometer-3080-pencil-hardness-tester-hardness-pencils

The Elcometer 3080 Pencil Hardness Tester – The set of Elcometer 3080 Hardness Testing Pencils is a simple but effective technique to evaluate the hardness of many coatings. The pencil lead, prepared beforehand by using the special pencil sharpener and rubbing it on fine abrasive paper (400 grade), is maintained at an angle of 45° and pushed with uniform pressure on to the sample, leaving either a superficial trace or causing destruction down to the substrate. The Elcometer 3080 Pencil Hardness Test is supplied complete with stand and a series of 14 pencils, ranging from 6B to 6H hardness values. Read More

Elcometer 4695 Opacity Charts

The term “Opacity Chart” refers to charts on which the test pattern is a simple combination of black and white areas, large enough for wider aperture reflectance instruments, as well as for visual opacity and colour observations.

Used to test the hiding power of the coating, using large black and white areas.

Elcometer 4695 Brushout Cards

Designed for informal brushout applications, thicker paper is used for the testing of coatings applied with a brush or roller.

The paper stock is almost twice the thickness of regular chart paper to give greater rigidity for more convenient handling – nominal thickness 0.5mm (20 mils).

Brushout Cards are also used widely for drawdowns and colorimetric measurements.

Elcometer 4695 Grey Scale Charts

The Elcometer 4695 Grey Scale Charts are sealed paint test charts with six stripes on a white field, ranging in shade from very light grey to black.

The stripes are numbered 1 to 6, representing uniform steps of increasing contrast.

The hiding power of the applied coatings is rated as the number of the darkest stripe that is completely (or almost completely) obscured, at a specified thickness or spread rate.

Form CU-1 is used for more practical large-area brush or roller applications as in ASTM D5150. Applications on Form 24B are made with a drawdown blade.
