Revolutionary apparatus for testing the resistivity of coatings at various stages of deformation in accordance with ISO 1520. The built in gear-box minimizes the manual force which is required to deform the test panel, allowing to perform a smooth deformation. The degree or deformation is digitally displayed at a resolution of 0.01 mm. Mandatory test in Qualicoat, QIB and GSB accredited laboratories.

Foil Clamp - For use with thin substrates (foils) like metal sheet brass and copper, an optional foil clamp (PA-920211) can be ordered. Thin substrates tend to curl on the sides and then cannot be removed properly from the clamping mechanism of the cuping test.
Sliding the foil clamp on top of the sample after the sample has been locked into the cupping test standard clamping mechanism will prevent the sample material to curl. After test the coil clamp is removed and the standard clamp is relesed where after the sample can be removed properly.
