The Gradient-oven, Model 432, is an indispensable tool for a need-based optimization of baking processes in the coating industry. To assess the baking and drying behavior of paint and powder coatings, resins, plastic materials and similar. The production process can be simulated by programming heat-up speed, baking temperature, and time with temperatures up to 320 °C.
The Model 504-V drying recorder automatically registers and records the drying behavior of paints and similar coatings. This device consists of a metal housing with cover plate which also serves as a support surface for 6 glass strips measuring 305 x 25 mm, on which the coatings to be tested have been applied. Using six testing needles the Drying Time Recorder can conduct testing with variable testing speeds, and choice of 20 pre-programmed running times from 7.5 minutes to 96 hours. Other running times (in increments of 30s) are available on request.
For testing the degree of through drying of a coating. A test plunger faced with nylon fabric and loaded with a defined weight is lowered onto the test surface for a period of 10 s, and then turned through 90º. The resulting effect on the coating is evaluated after lifting the test plunger
A simple plunger type press for measuring Degree of Dryness in accordance with DIN 53 150 in the range from 2 to 7. A glass tube Ballotini dispenser to measure Degree of Dryness 1 is available as accessory.
The Film Applicator and Drying Time Recorder COATMASTER 510/510 XL, enhanced successor of the worldwide established COATMASTER 509 MC, is a compact combined film application and testing instrument equipped with a foil keyboard, and performing two basic functions if the appropriate accessories are selected: the use as a high-precision film applicator, the determination of the degree of dryness in accordance with DIN 53 150 and the performance of comparative drying tests. Exchangeable Specimen Platforms : Glass plate, Vacuum suction plates for foils, papers and cards, in different versions – also electrically heatable, adjustable for temperatures up to 140°C (upon request up to 150 °C).
