Details: Kit includes adhesion tester with digital display, built-in rechargeable NiMH batteries with charger, 20mm aluminum test dollies (20), abrasive pad, cutting tool, adhesive with mixing sticks and palettes, cotton swabs, instruction booklet and video, Certificate of Calibration traceable to NIST, 2-year warranty, and sturdy, lightweight carrying case. Pull Rate Indicator allows operator to easily monitor and adjust the rate of pull in accordance with international test methods. Easily select dolly sizes, change measurement units or store readings, with the touch of a button. Conversion charts not required - tester automatically calculates pressure based on dolly size. Inexpensive, single-use dollies eliminate cleaning for re-use and can be kept as a permanent record. Each kit comes with everything needed for testing. Durable, environmentally sealed enclosure - weatherproof, dustproof and shockproof - meets or exceeds IP65. Can be used in any position. Accurate, Every PosiTest Adhesion Tester pressure system is calibrated and certified to +/- 1 percent accuracy using NIST traceable load cell. Self-aligning aluminum dolly enables accurate measurements on smooth or uneven surfaces. Hi-grade, industrial pressure sensor ensures continued accuracy. Conforms to national and international standards including ASTM D4541/D7234, ISO 4624/16276-1, AS/NZS 1580.408.5 and others. Versatile, internal memory stores maximum pull-off pressure, rate of pull, test duration and dolly size for up to 200 pulls. Optional PosiSoft software available for downloading. 10, 14, 20 or 50 mm dollies maximize capability and measurement resolution across a wide range of bond strengths. LCD displays pressure value in psi or MPa. The PosiTest Adhesion Tester compensates for misalignment. The self-aligning, quick-coupling actuator and spherical articulating dolly head enable uniform distribution of the pulling force over the surface being tested, preventing a one-sided pull-off.
