This Elcometer 1542 Cross Hatch Adhesion Tester is ideal for measuring the cross hatch adhesion of coatings between 50 and 125µm (2.0 - 5.0mils) on flat surfaces and test panels.
Measure on large or small panels by quickly changing the position of the guide wheel using the hexagonal wrench provided. Each cutter wheel consists of eight cutting faces. When one face becomes worn, simply rotate the cutting wheel to the next face to continue testing.
This Basic Kit includes the Elcometer 1542 Cross Hatch Adhesion Tester, a 6 x 2mm cutter wheel, a cutter angle adjustment tool, a hexagonal wrench, a transit case, and a user guide.
The Elcometer 1542 Cross Hatch Cutter is also available in two other cutter spacings, 1 (0 - 60µm / 0 - 2.4mils) and 3mm (121 - 250µm/ 4.8 - 9.8mils), for a range of coating thicknesses.
This product is also available in a Full Kit, which includes all of the items in the Basic Kit, in addition to a brush, a x10 magnifier, and your choice of either ISO or ASTM adhesive tape.
Advanced Kits are also available, which include all three (1, 2, and 3mm) cross hatch adhesion cutters, together with all the other items included in the Basic Kit and Full Kits, as well as your choice of either ISO or ASTM D3359 Cross Hatch Adhesion Test Tape.
