Elcometer 1615 Variable Impact Testers

The Elcometer 1615 Variable Impact Tester is a simple to use gauge ideal for evaluating the resistance of a coating to impact (elongation, cracking or peeling). • Heavy-duty passivated base plate and anodised arm for long life • Graduated tube with engraved markings • Quick, safe weight release mechanism • Integrated bubble level to ensure the tester is perpendicular for accurate results • Stop collar with 10 settings between 2mm and 15mm to change the depth of impact when working … Read More

Elcometer 1620 Cupping Tester

This robust and user-friendly tester is used for assessing the cupping ability of coatings applied to metal sheets up to 1.2mm thick. The Elcometer 1620 Cupping Tester 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 Elcometer 1620 Cupping Tester has a digital gauge with an illuminated magnifier to accurately view the resultant damage and provides accurate readings of … Read More

Elcometer 1506 Cylindrical Mandrel Bend Tester

The Elcometer 1506 Cylindrical Mandrel is a robust bend tester used to determine 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 the mandrel used and the mandrels are easily changed. … Read More

Elcometer 1500 Set of Cylindrical Mandrels on a stand

The Elcometer 1500 Cylindrical Mandrel 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. The Elcometer 1500 Set of Cylindrical Mandrels on a stand can be used in accordance with: AS/NZS 1580.402.1 ASTM D 2485 ASTM D … Read More

Elcometer 1510 Conical Mandrel Bend Tester

The Elcometer 1510 Conical Mandrel Bend Tester is 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 the … Read More
