Product Description


CHEMINTRUMENTS Poluken Probe Tack Tester
Model :PT-1000

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.

  • Easy sample setup makes testing quick and consistent
  • 5 pound load cell is included with the machine
  • Simple one-touch operation delivers information quickly and easily
  • Operating temperature range 32° - 150° F (0° - 70° C)
  • Capable of stand-alone operation with integrated digital display
  • Data can be downloaded to EZ-Lab software for complete data management
  • Accurate to ± 0.1% of load cell range
  • Capable of pulling up to 5 pounds (2.5 Kg)
  • Standard input voltage - 120 VAC (50/60hz)

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.

  • Records 1000 data points per second during a test interval
  • Displays the high measured force result immediately upon completion of a test
  • Stores data from up to 10 tests, allowing for quick review of previously recorded values
  • Export data by RS-232 connection to a local PC with our EZ-Lab software
  • Displays test values in grams, kilograms, ounces, pounds or Newtons

EZ-Lab Compatible

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.


  • EZ-Lab data management software
  • Custom probes available (diameter and material)
  • Custom annular rings available (mass and material)


  • Input voltage - 240 VAC (50/60hz)
  • Additional load cell capacities available: 2 and 10 pounds
  • PSTC and TLMI testing manuals and videos
