The Elcometer 4270 Sag Tester is used to establish a coating’s resistance to sag due to gravity.

Made from stainless steel, the straight scraper has 11 notches of increasing clearance. A contrast chart is immediately placed in a vertical position with the thinnest film at the top. The thickness at which the stripes join indicates the tendency to sag.
