Elcometer 510 Automatic Pull-Off Adhesion Gauge

The Elcometer 510 Automatic Pull-Off Adhesion Gauge accurately measures the adhesion strength of coatings on a wide range of substrates.

Using an automatic hydraulic pump, the Elcometer 510 Pull-Off Adhesion Tester ensures smooth and continuous pressure application for consistent and repeatable results. Whilst the rate of pull is controlled manually for most pull-off adhesion testers, the Elcometer 510 Pull-Off Adhesion Gauge allows the rate of pull to be selected, and the gauge applies the pre-selected rate automatically.

The Elcometer 510 Pull-Off Adhesion Tester includes all the features that you have come to expect from an Elcometer designed and manufactured product, including ease of use, robust and ergonomic design, menu driven colour display, user selectable statistics and display modes.

As well as reducing inspection times, the Elcometer 510 Pull-Off Adhesion Gauge can also speed up inspection reporting. When out in the field or on site, users can instantly review their data using Elcometer’s free data management software, ElcoMaster®. Each live reading can be transferred via Bluetooth® to a PC, or mobile devices and, at the click of a button; users are able to generate professional reports.

  

Recording Pull-Off Force to National and International Standards:

 

 

 

Many Standards require you to record the nature of the failure (either adhesive or cohesive) as an estimated percentage to the nearest 10%, as well the pull-off force.
 
When the Elcometer 510 is set to Advanced Mode1, the nature of the fracture can be recorded digitally against the reading.

You can also store any combination of two failures – whether it’s up to two adhesive failures (a failure at the interface between layers), two cohesive failures (a failure within the body of a coating layer, or the substrate when testing on concrete), or a combination of both adhesive and cohesive failures.

1. An Introduction to Pull-Off Adhesion on Coated Surfaces

Adhesion testers are used to test how well a coating has adhered to a surface, as poor adhesion can lead to premature coating failures. The coating inspector has essentially three main methods to choose from - cross hatch, push off, and the most common, the pull-off adhesion test.

2. Selecting the Dolly Diameter and Gauge

When it comes to selecting the dolly diameter and adhesion gauge type to use for a pull-off adhesion test; factors such as the substrate material, the substrate shape, and the expected coating strength will affect the dolly or gauge the user chooses.

3. Selecting the most Appropriate Position for an Adhesion Test

When preparing a pull-off adhesion test, whilst the actual location and the number of pulls is typically defined by the test method or procedure that’s being followed, the actual positioning of the dolly is vital, as poor positions can result in low pull-off values or invalid tests.

6. The Pull-Off Test

Once the glue between a properly prepared dolly or pull stub and a properly prepared coating has fully cured, the pull-off adhesion test can be undertaken using the adhesion tester of choice.

7. Assessing the Result; Glue, Adhesive and Cohesive Failures

Once the pull-off adhesion test has been completed the tensile pull-off force, whether the coating was coat or not, the dolly size and gauge type, and the failure mode of the coating are all recorded; with the nature of the failure usually recorded as an estimated percentage to the nearest 10%.
