Detail Elcometer 1542 Cross Hatch Adhesion Tester
Cross Hatch Adhesion Tester | Elcometer 1542
The Elcometer 1542 is ideal for measuring the cross hatch adhesion of coatings up to 250µm (9.8mils) 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 8 cutting faces. When one face becomes worn, rotate the cutting wheel to the next face.
The Elcometer 1542 is available with three different cutter spacings:
- 1mm spacing – for coating thickness 0 – 60µm (0 – 2.4mils)
- 2mm spacing – for coating thickness 50 – 125µm (2.0 – 5.0mils)
- 3mm spacing – for coating thickness 121 – 250µm (4.8 – 9.8mils)
The Elcometer 1542 is available on its own (Basic Kit) or as a Full Kit which includes a brush, magnifier & ISO or ASTM adhesive tape. There are also Advanced Kits which include all three (1, 2 & 3mm) cross hatch adhesion testers, together with either ISO or ASTM D3359 Cross Hatch Adhesion Test Tape.
