Elcometer 1615 Variable Impact Testers

The Elcometer 1615 Variable Impact Tester is a simple to use gauge is ideal for evaluating the resistance of a coating to impact (elongation, cracking or peeling).There are two test methods: either a weight with a hemispherical punch attached falls on a coated metal sheet or a weight falls on to a hemispherical punch which is resting on the coated metal sheet. The Elcometer 1615 Impact Tester comes as one universal assembly with the option of six different kits providing … Read More

Elcometer 1620 Cupping Tester

The Elcometer 1620 Cupping Tester is a robust and user-friendly instrument used for assessing the cupping ability of coatings applied to metal sheets up to 1.2mm thick.The Elcometer 1620 has a 27mm diameter hardened steel die in a clamping device and a 20mm diameter punch. A hand-rotated crank and reduction drive moves the punch progressively into the sample. The motorised version provides high levels of repeatability and replaces the manual crank handle to ensure perfect reproducibility. A constant “cupping speed” … Read More

Elcometer 1506 Cylindrical Mandrel Bend Tester

Similar in use to the Elcometer 1510, the Elcometer 1506 Cylindrical Mandrel Bend Tester is also a very robust mechanical unit for determining the elasticity, adhesion and elongation properties of cured coatings on sheet metal.The frame has a bending lever with height-adjustable rollers and a sliding vice for clamping the sample which means the test pieces are bent perfectly and regularly on decreasing mandrels until the desired effect can be observed. The instrument can be adjusted to the diameter of … Read More

Elcometer 1500 Set of Cylindrical Mandrels on a stand

The Elcometer 1500 Set of Cylindrical Mandrels on a stand is a simple instrument for determining the elasticity, adhesion and cracking of dry paint on flat specimens, consisting of a mandrel support which also serves as a test stand.Coated metal sheets, maximum 150mm  in length x 100mm wide, are manually and successively bent around mandrels of decreasing diameter until cracks appear.

Elcometer 1510 Conical Mandrel Bend Tester

The Elcometer Conical Mandrel Bend Tester is a mechanical tester used to determine the effects of bending on the elasticity, adhesion and elongation properties of cured coatings on sheet metal.The frame has a bending lever with a roller which pivots on a steel conical mandrel with a diameter from 3.2 – 38.1mm. A graduation indicates the mandrel diameter in both mm and inches. The specimen can be bent on part of, or along, the entire length of the mandrel, and … Read More
