Novasys Group presents the Erichsen Model 202 EM lacquer and paint testing machines designed for quality management of protective paints and different types of coatings.
Erichsen Model 202 EM lacquer and paint testing machine features an electromotive drive equipped with a laterally opened test head, test tool in accordance with DIN EN ISO 1520, electric installation for connecting the illumination of the microscope as well as a digital display for the acquisition of the ERICHSEN cupping value, with an integrated preselection counter for setting the maximum cupping value required.
The machine is a valuable tool for quality control, both for producers of paints and coating materials as well as for end users.
Simple to operate, the testing equipment is used for rapid and accurate measurement of the elongation and adhesion properties of protective paints and coatings of all types using the Erichsen cupping test in accordance with DIN EN ISO 1520, BS 3900 : Part E4, NF T 30-019 and SIS 18 41 77, on sheetmetal specimens up to 1.5mm thick and 100mm wide.
The ERICHSEN cupping test provides valuable information on the suitability of a coating material for any application. For instance, low cupping test values mean that the coated product may not withstand elongation stresses, resulting in corrosion of the substrate.
- Special test tool with an 8mm diameter ball punch for use with narrower sheetmetal specimens (30mm to 55mm wide)
- Microscopes for observing the test procedure
- Electric measuring device for objective and accurate electric measurement of the destruction of coatings
- VIDEOMASTER USB camera module for visual observation of lacquered and coated surfaces during the cupping process
