Minimum Film Forming Temperature Bar – (MFFTB) Temperature Gradient Bar

Product Description


The Rhopoint Minimum Film Forming Temperature Bar is the industry leading instrument for measuring the minimum film forming temperature of water based materials. Definition – “MFFT is the lowest temperature at which a latex, emulsion or adhesive will uniformly coalesce when laid on a substrate as a thin film.” An accurate MFFT value allows the formulation of products that cure correctly under specified application conditions. The Rhopoint MFFT works by holding a very accurate temperature gradient across a nickel plated copper platen. A flow of dried air across the platen stops condensation forming and gives repeatable test conditions.

Elcometer 215 Oven Temperature Data Recorder

Product Description


The Elcometer 215 is an easy to use oven data recorder, used to measure and store the temperature profiles of both the sample and the oven during the cure process. Both the thermal barrier and heat sink are constructed from stainless steel.

  • Specifically designed for powder or liquid coating batch and conveyor ovens
  • Large multi-lingual menu-driven display for easy operation
  • Measure temperature both horizontally and vertically as the component is passed through the cure process
  • Ideal in situations where powder coated thickness is inconsistent
  • Measures up to 6 temperatures at one time
  • Memory stores up to 260,000 readings or 8 production runs
  • Display the results of every stored reading, including Cure-Index
  • Start and stop logging at a pre-set temperature
  • Each Teflon coated high temperature resistant probe cable is easy to clean after each run
  • Variable measurement interval, date, time, ºC / ºF
