• Adhesion Testing Videos

  • Pull-Off Adhesion Testers provide a definitive adhesion value, ideal for the laboratory or field. Tensile Dollies (or stubs) are glued to the coating and, when the adhesive has cured, the force required to pull the coating off the surface is measured. Elcometer's range of Pull-Off Adhesion Testers are designed to quickly and accurately assess the strength of the bond between the coating and the substrate.
