Paint test equipment Cross Hatch Cutter

Paint test equipment Cross Hatch Cutter

Description

The Cross Hatch Cutter is a multi-blade cutting tool which enables an assessment to be made of the adhesion resistance of coatings to separation from substrates.

The coating thickness determines the Cutter size used. The 1mm Cutter is suitable for coatings under 60 microns. The 2mm Cutter is suitable for coatings over 60 microns.

Supplied in an industrial Carrying Case with Adhesion Test Tape 25mm and a x3 Illuminated Magnifier.

The Cross Hatch Cutter is a multi-blade cutting tool which enables an assessment to be made of the adhesion resistance of coatings to separation from substrates when a right-angled lattice pattern is cut into the coating and penetrates through to the substrate.
The coating thickness determines the Cutter size used.
The 1mm Cutter is suitable for coatings under 60 microns.
The 2mm Cutter is suitable for coatings over 60 microns.
Multiple coatings can be tested for the assessment of the resistance to separation of individual layers of the coating from each other.

The hardened tool steel cutting blades are precision-ground with 6 cutting sides, so that when one cutting side becomes blunt there are a further 5 cutting sides to use.
The Adhesion Test Tape has an adhesive strength of 9.5N per 25mm width and is transparent to ensure correct adhesion to the coating.
Supplied in an industrial foam-filled Carrying Case with Adhesion Test Tape 25mm and a x3 Illuminated Magnifier.
