Our Impact Testers are Robust, Precision Engineered, High-Quality instruments. They are used to make reliably evaluate coating's flexibility and resistance to rapid deformation.
A free falling weight from a controlled distance impacts a coated surface. The coating on the surface is then reviewed visually to check for cracking or crazing. When a product has a coating applied to only one surface, the testing can be done on either the coated side or the reverse, uncoated side. Usually, both sides are tested.
Most protective coatings must be impact tested for optimal quality control. This instrument is indispensable for industries in painting, plating, plastic, varnish, resin, compound, coil coating, sheet metal, etc.
