CHEMINTRUMENTS Poluken Probe Tack Tester
The Polykenâ„¢ Probe Tack from ChemInstruments makes it easy to measure the tack of pressure sensitive adhesives. A precision ground 5.0 mm diameter flat probe contacts the adhesive, reverses direction and pulls away from the adhesive. The maximum force required to break the adhesive bond is recorded and displayed.
The Polykenâ„¢ Probe Tack adhesive testing machine meets the standards set forth in ASTM D2979. Machine speed is 24 ipm (61 cpm), probe diameter of 5 mm and an annular ring weight that applies 9.79 +/-0.10 kPa of force. An automatic test cycle produces a 1 second dwell time from the beginning of contact to the end of contact.
Data Acquisition System
The ChemInstruments electronic data acquisition system is a state-of-the-art microprocessor controlled force measurement package that combines accuracy with ease of use. This system simultaneously controls test motion, reads the force of a test from a load cell, digitally displays it and also stores that data in its memory.
Remote setup, operational control and enhanced data collection are all possible when coupled with our EZ-Lab data management software. This application requires an external PC.
