Elcometer has announced the launch of its new Elcometer 510 Automatic Pull-Off Adhesion Gauge, delivering fast and repeatable measurement of coating adhesion.
The Elcometer 510 is the most advanced adhesion tester on the market today. In addition to automatically performing the pull-off adhesion test at the press of a button, the Elcometer 510 also stores the cohesive and adhesive failure attributes, generates individual pull rate graphs for each test, allows users to set a maximum pull limit and then can instantly send all the information directly to a mobile via Bluetooth® - generating instant reports, straight from the inspection site.
- Automatically measure and save up to 60,000 readings, together with individual pull graphs, dolly diameter, pull rate, failure attributes, and much more – in up to 2500 alpha numeric batches.
- Easily select from a list of dolly diameters (10, 14.2, 20 and 50 mm) and pull rates allowing users to measure the maximum pull off adhesion up to 25MPa - 3600psi (20 mm) or even 100MPa - 14400psi (10mm) to an accuracy of ±1% of full scale.
- Individual pull-off limits can be set which allows the gauge to only pull to the limit feature before returning to zero – ideal for ‘non-destructive’ testing. The Elcometer 510’s unique ‘hold at limit’ feature allows users to determine how long the gauge remains at a defined maximum force before returning to zero.
- Advanced Bluetooth® connectivity seamlessly links the Elcometer 510 to both PC or iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android mobile devices through the ElcoMaster™ App – for instant data transfer and professional reports.
