Product Description

Elcometer 1542 Cross Hatch Adhesion Tester

The Elcometer 1542 Cross Hatch Adhesion Tester is a simple but effective tester to determine the adhesion of coatings. This instrument is ideal for coatings on flat surfaces and is available with one of three different spacings:

  • 1mm spacing – for coating thickness <60µm
  • 2mm spacing – for coating thickness <125µm
  • 3mm spacing – for coating thickness <250µm

Each gauge can be supplied separately or combined in a kit with a standardised brush and x10 magnifier.

  • Efficient cross hatch cutter with 8 cutting faces
  • Anodised aluminium handle with a wheel for stable operation, ideal for test panels
  • Supplied with an adjustment gauge for accurate positioning of the cutter face
