News: Elcometer 506 Pull Off Adhesion Gauges
Main News in detail
The Elcometer 506 Pull Off Adhesion Testers are lightweight, portable and easy-to-use adhesion gauges are available in analogue or digital versions and are suitable for measuring the pull-off adhesion of coatings up to 50MPa either on-site, or in the laboratory.
The design of the Elcometer 506 Pull Off Adhesion Tester ensures that a uniform force can be easily applied throughout the range by smoothly rotating the gauge’s crank handle, ensuring repeatable results to an accuracy of ±1%.
The Elcometer 506 Pull-Off Adhesion Tester quick connect coupling allows the simple attachment of 14.2mm, 20mm or 50mm diameter dollies which, together with a wide range of accessories, allows coating adhesion testing on flat, curved, thick and thin substrates – including metal, wood, concrete and other fibrous materials.
The Elcometer 506 Pull Off Adhesion Tester test head (actuator) has been designed to be small, ergonomic and lightweight – ideal for single handed testing of coating adhesion even in awkward or confined spaces.
Safe testing on vertical surfaces has also been considered. Using the magnetic clamp accessory the actuator is held securely – preventing accidental damage to the surrounding areas.

Testing coatings on concrete & low bond strength substrates
When testing coatings on low bond strength substrates such as concrete, wood or other fibrous materials, a larger surface area of dolly is required to improve accuracy, repeatability and reproducability.
The Elcometer 506 Pull Off Concrete Adhesion Tester can be supplied as a kit or with individual 50mm accessory items (skirt, dolly, cutter) which can be added to existing Elcometer 506 gauges.
