Product Description
Automatic Pull-Off Adhesion Tester
- Electronically controlled hydraulic pump automatically applies smooth and continuous pull-off pressure
- Greatly reduces user effort and the risk of influencing the pulling process
- User adjustable pull rate, pull limit and hold time
- A rechargeable NiMH battery is built-in providing up to 200 tests per charge
- High resolution screen
- Wireless connection to a smart device
- Records the nature of the failure: cohesion, adhesion, or glue failure

There are two models available. The model AT-A Automatic Pull-Off Adhesion Tester and Model AT manual version. Both models have the following features:
- Portable, hand-operated instrument can be used in any position and requires no external power source-ideal for the lab and on-site
- Large scale reads clearly and easily in PSI and MPa
- Inexpensive, single-use dollies eliminate the need for heating, cleaning, or brushing for re-use
- Self-aligning dolly enables measurement on smooth or uneven surfaces without adversely affecting the test results.
- Heavy-duty hydraulic pump with safety valve helps prevent damage to pressure system
- Quick-coupling makes securing dollies in actuator simple, fast and trouble-free
- Multi-purpose, high-tensile two-part adhesive suitable for use with a wide variety of coatings and coating thicknesses
- Cutting tool for isolating test area is included
- Coating adhesion tester pressure system is calibrated and certified to ±1 % accuracy (full-scale) and comes with a two-year warranty
- Internal memory stores up to 200 pulls. This includes maximum pull-off pressure, rate of pull, test duration, and dolly size
- Optional PosiSoft software available to upload test results
- USB Port PC interface
- 10, 14, 20, and 50mm dollies to maximize the measurement resolution and test range
