BEND TEST SYSTEM

The TQC Cylindrical Bend Test from Paul N. Gardner Co. Inc. is a robust yet elegant testing instrument to indicate the elasticity, elongation and adhesion of a paint film at bending stress. It is designed to perform tests according to the latest ISO standards, notably ISO 1519: "Assessing the resistance of a coating, paint, varnish or related products to cracking and/or detachment from a surface when, subjected to bending around a cylindrical mandrel under standard conditions".

The Cylindrical Bend Test is made of anodized aluminum and stainless steel, and features an ergonomic clamping device for test panels, a large knob on the bending arm for smooth and easy bending, and a desk-top mandrel holder which can also be mounted to the wall for convenience. The instrument will bend test panels up to 150 x 100 mm.

The model SP1820 includes the Cylindrical Bend Test 100 mm, a desk-top mandrel holder with a set of 14 mandrels with a diameter of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, 16, 19, 20, 25 and 32 mm.

The model SP1822 includes the Cylindrical Bend Test 100 mm, a desk-top mandrel holder with a set of seven mandrels with diameters ranging from 1/8 in. to one in.

SP1820 complies to ISO 1519. SP1822 complies to ASTM D522. Unit dimensions are 140x 170 x 340 mm, and weight is 4150 gm.

The maximum test panel thickness is 1 mm.
