A push off adhesion test measures the pressure required to push an area of coating away from the substrate. The Elcometer push off adhesion testers are ideal for flat or curved surfaces and can test adhesion on both internal and external pipes.
An Elcometer push off adhesion tester, such as the Elcometer 508, is hand-powered, portable and ideal for testing the coating adhesion on tanks, pipelines etc. For more accurate adhesion testing on curved areas, there is a wide range of curved dollies available, each designed for a specific range of curvature.
For more information, see the Elcometer Guide to Adhesion Testing.
