Multi-Purpose Gauge | Master Paint Plate

Caltech Engineering Services offers Multi- Purpose Gauge or Master Paint Plate a very useful gauge for cross cut adhesion testing as per ASTM D3359 Method A and ASTM D3359 method B standard. This gauge is also useful for determination of wet film thickness and also used to determine sagging properties. ASTM D3359 Test Method A is primarily intended for use at job sites while Test Method B is more suitable for use in the laboratory. Also, Test Method B is not considered suitable for films thicker than 5 mils (125μm)

One Gauge with following features:

  • Multi-purpose surface testing equipment: Cross-cut tester for the adhesion assessment of thin and thick single or multi coat systems in line with Test Method A and Test Method B. Applicator for the preparation of wedge-shaped layers of coating materials, sagging applicator for determining the sagging properties and wet-film thickness gauge for testing the film thickness.
  • 6 different cross-cut tests with easy positioning by use of vision panel integrated in one.
  • Instrument, amongst others the lattice pattern with 11 cuts according to ASTM D 3359 method B
  • Made of stainless steel.
