The Elcometer 106 Adhesion Tester is easy to operate and fully portable Type II adhesion gauge which provides a numerical value for adhesion strength.

Applications for the Elcometer 106 Adhesion Test include paint or plasma spray on bridge decking, coatings on steel, aluminium, concrete etc.

  • Supplied in a carry case - ideal for site tests
  • Hand operated - no need for a power supply
  • Includes a cutter for EN13144 and ISO 4624 tests
     

Adhesion Test Method

A test dolly is bonded to the coating using an adhesive. The Elcometer 106 adhesion tester houses a spring arrangement which applies a lift force to the dolly as the tension is increased.When the coating is pulled off the surface, an indicator on the scale shows the numerical value of adhesion strength expressed in terms of the force per unit area required to remove the dolly.Inspection of the dolly face is required to determine the failure mode.To increase sensitivity at low values or for uneven surfaces, a 40mm (1.52”) dolly is available. When using the 40mm (1.52”) dolly, divide the scale reading by 4.
