This Pull off Adhesion Tester - easy to operate and fully portable, provides a numerical value for adhesion. Applications include: paint or plasma spray on bridge decking, coatings on steel, aluminum or concrete, etc.
Comes in a carrying case - ideal for site tests. Hand operated so you dont have to worry about a power supply!
A test dolly is bonded to the coating using an adhesive.
The BGD 500 houses a spring arrangement which applies a lift force to the dolly.
When the dolly is pulled off the surface, an indicator on the scale shows the numerical value of adhesion expressed in terms of the force required to remove the dolly.
Test from low adhesion values of 5-30 PSI(0.05-0.2N/mm2)up to 500-3200PSI(5-22N/mm2)
It can be used in accordance with ASTM D 4541,BS EN 24624,and ISO 4624
