Testing Machines Inc. Tack Tester (Model PICMA P3)

When you need to measure the tacking strength between vulcanized and unvulcanized rubber, look no further than the PICMA Tack Tester. 


Brought to you by Testing Machines Inc, our physical property specialist testing brand, this talented tack tester also inspects the tacking strength of foams, plastics and polymers and textiles. 

The PICMA P3 is a bench top tack tester that’s relied upon across the flexible packaging, inks and coatings and plastic and polymer sectors. 

Tack tester results when you need them 

If you’re using rubber and reinforcement materials to create molding tires and belts, they’re often bonded in multiple layers and vulcanized. It’s essential to check each component’s tackiness with a tack tester before the forming process is completed.  

Tack tester alternatives  

We make a wide range of tack tester devices and related accessories. For example, check out the Heat Sealer and Hot Tack Base 75-50 or the Tackiness Checker (Model HTC-1) 80-10.

Success Stories

The problem

Canning production line problems are time consuming and costly. At some point many food and beverage companies encounter an issue with the seams of their cans, as was the case for a major brewery we work with.

The solution

Our customer needed a reliable machine to measure everything from seam thickness, height and gap through to countersink depth and overlap. The SEAMscan SPC System, an affordable, high-resolution tool for double seam inspection and measurement, solved their problem.

The result

‍Gicole Patterson of Blues City Brewery said:


“We have experienced very minimal downtime due to their (the IP technical support team’s) dedication! I can’t express enough how happy I am with their support!”
