The TQC Bend Test Conical Mandrel Pro is an easy-to-use tool capable of bend testing panels in order to assess the elasticity or resistance of a coating, paint or varnish to cracking, elongation and/or detachment from a metal test panel. It can test in accordance with ISO 6860 and ASTM D522.
The test panel is bent over a conical shaped mandrel and, through its deformation, it’s possible to examine the elasticity range of a coating over any diameter between 3.1 and 38 mm in one single test.
This fast and efficient bend tester can be used to assess a wide range of inks and coatings on a variety of metal test panels, making it a useful component of any comprehensive QA process for laboratories and manufacturers. It is particularly useful for the automotive industry, where smooth paint jobs are key, and for the developers of paints, inks and coatings for a multitude of uses.
It’s very straightforward – the sample panel is secured to the apparatus by means of a quick lever handle that locks and unlocks the panel in a split second, with a simple manual movement.
For a look at how simple the process is, check out this video of the TQC Conical Bend Test Basic, which follows the same testing principle as the Pro although it offers fewer features.
Knowing that your test and inspection solutions meet the most common standards for your industry can be a huge weight off your mind. The TQC Bend Test Conical Mandrel Pro has been designed to perform bend testing to ISO 6860 and ASTM D522.
