Cylindrical Mandrel Bending Tester, Model 266 S-Basic and Film Applicator Model 510-Basic

The cylindrical mandrel bending tester model 266 S and the film applicator COATMASTER 510 are now available as basic version!

Film Application


Film Applicator COATMASTER 510 Basic-G

The Film Applicators Model 510 Basic-G and Model 510 Basic-V are compact testing instruments equipped with a foil keyboard.The use of appropriate accessories means that they can be used as high-precision film applicators. The microprocessor-controlled, precisely graded step motor drive engineering guarantees an extremely uniform accomplishment as well as an excellent repeatability of all processes set.

  • Variable application path up to approx. 400 mm.
  • Individually programmable start position
  • Freely selectable drawn down speed in therange of 10 - 100 mm/s
  • Automatic quick return by key press
  • Film applicator symmetrically working in both directions

Purpose and Application: A motorised film applicator is used in cases where a surface has to be covered with an absolutelyuniform film, reliable information is needed on the relation-ship between the wet and the dry filmthickness, a large number of exactly identical samples has to be produced. All kinds of inevitable inaccuracies when applying films manually, are avoided by using the automatic drawing method. Typical users are the lacquer and paint industry, especially for the research / development / quality control of many different products. Generally universities / academies as well as institutes studying high sensitive facts within the scope of their research and development projects requiring an optimally controlled film application, i.e. in the research of solar cells, fuel cells and accumulators as well as in the medical technology and research.

Elasticity Testing

Model 266 S-Basic

Cylindircal Mandrel Bending Tester Model 266 S-Basic

The cylindrical Mandrel Bending Tester, Model 266 S-Basic, is a compact, robust lever-type instrument made of lacquered steel which is suitable for table-top use. The three pivoted pressure rollers parallel to the axis of the cylinder are made of rigid PVC. The instrument is supplied in a sturdy plastic case. Model 266 S-Basic only includes 1 cylindrical mandrel at choice (please specify when ordering). Additional individual mandrels can be ordered optionally.

Purpose and application: Purpose and application The mandrel bending test is a commonly used testing method for assessing the flexibility and the adhesive properties of coatings when these are subjected to bending stresses. The cylindrical Mandrel Bending Tester, Model 266 S-Basic, comply with the standards EN ISO 1519, EN 13523-7 and ASTM D 522.

Test principle: Testing with the cylindrical mandrel bending tester determines the greatest cylinder diameter at which a coating will still show cracking or flaking subsequent to bending.The cylindrical Mandrel Bending Tester, Model 266 S-Basic, allows the testing of samples up to a width of 100 mm.
