  • Powder-Coated box is much more robust than previous PATTI®'s - will maintain its aesthetic value
  • The PATTI® features a patented piston design which assures uniaxial alignment with the pull-stub axis for "true tensile testing"
  • New regulator eliminates the internal pop valve, allowing for use of entire air cartridge
  • New air cartridge capacity is twice that of other PATTI® models
  • Simplified design requires fewer internal parts and reduces the frequency of maintenance / repair
  • With the exception of the new, higher capacity CO2 Cartridge, can use the same pistons, pull-stubs and supplies as previous PATTI®'s
  • The reduced number of internal parts makes the PATTI® QUANTUM lighter than other PATTI®'s and more portable than ever
  • The self-aligning PATTI®QUANTUM quantitatively measures the adhesion strength of numerous coatings, including: paints, polymers, ceramics, inks, films, adhesives, and thermal or arc-sprayed metals.
  • Laboratory or field use.
  • The test surface can be smooth, rough, porous, flat or curved (please contact us for application specific solutions). Custom-machined pull-stubs are available at any size, either flat or with a radius to match curved surfaces.
  • The PATTI® can also be used to test the strength of adhesives under non-room environmental conditions from 32-212 degrees Fahrenheit (0-100 degrees Celsius).
  • Features for Digital/Gold Models only.
    • Maximum load is displayed on a 4-1/2 digit seven-segment display gauge with 0.5% accuracy.
    • The digital gauge displays the increasing load and holds the maximum psig value when the Min/Max button is pushed.
    • Push Zero/Clear in order to zero the readout and you are ready for the next test.

The PATTI® instrument and method conforms to ASTM D-4541, "Pull-Off Strength of Coatings Using Portable Adhesion Testers".


  1. The PATTI® Quantum uses compressed inert gas to apply a continuous tensile load to an aluminum pull-stub which is bonded to the test surface with an adhesive.
  2. After the adhesive has cured, the operator attaches the selected piston.
  3. Then the operator pushes and holds the "RUN" button. A continuous load is then applied perpendicular to the pull-stub until failure occurs, or until a specified load is reached.
  4. The PATTI® can be pressurized with CO2 cartridges to make it portable for field use. In the laboratory, nitrogen or any clean inert gas system providing at least 100 psig (up to 160 psig) can be used.

Delivery Content

PATTI Concrete includes Analog Laboratory/Field control module, one dual load range piston (F8/12 aka F-20), transport toolbox, accessory kit [(20) 2" Pull-Stubs, Stand-Off Ring, high and low-pressure hoses, epoxy kit, talcum powder, *6 CO2 cartridges] and instruction manual. (Due to FAA regulations CO2 cartridges will only be shipped by ground. Cartridges can generally be purchased at bike shops or sporting goods stores.)
