Product Description

Elcometer 1615 Variable Impact Tester

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 in order to test a sample in accordance with a range of National and International standards.

The test specimen is fixed into position by the quick release clamp. The weight is lifted to the predetermined height and can be set by the adjustable collar device. The weight is then released and the resulting deformation is observed.

  • The base unit is common to all tests. Simply select the appropriate kit to meet your requirements.
  • 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 in accordance with ISO Standards, supplied with Kits A, D and F
  • Easy fix sample clamp – the test sample can be secured or released by a simple twist of the clamp handle supplied with Kits A, D and F
  • Magnifier x 10

The tube has clearly engraved, graduated markings in both kg-c and lb-inch to ensure accuracy and a quick, safe weight release mechanism which holds the weight safely and allows a smooth release.

Tube height: 1000mm

The stop collar, supplied with Kits A, D and F or as an optional accessory, allows the penetration depth to be limited. By rotating the stop collar, the user can select the depth required between 2-15mm.

Values: 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 and 15mm

Each Impact Tester is supplied with an integrated bubble level ensuring accurate setup prior to any test.

The Elcometer 1615 Variable Impact Testers are designed to meet a wide range of National and International Standards. Simply select the appropriate kit and attach the punch, die and accessories to the base unit. Interchangeable die – enables the user to match the die to the size of the relevant punch to conform to the required Standard or method.

The optional easy to fix sample clamp enables the user to quickly and safely secure the sample.
