"Looking to improve your Adhesion Testing results?"
Read the following White Paper to learn more about our newest Patent-Pending Product (still in development)
"The most accurate adhesion tester on the market!"
PATTI® QUANTUM FEATURES:
The same quality you have come to expect from the PATTI®
The powder-coated box is much more robust than previous PATTI®'s – will maintain its aesthetic value
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 cartridges it 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®QUANTUMquantitatively 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).
EASY TO USE:
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.
After the adhesive has cured, the operator attaches the selected piston. 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.
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.
PATTI® QUANTUM DIGITAL GAUGE ELIMINATES GUESSWORK:
The 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.
SELF-ALIGNING, NO OPERATOR BIAS: The PATTI® features a patented piston design which assures uniaxial alignment with the pull-stub axis for "true tensile testing"
MEASURES ADHESION STRENGTH UP TO 10,000 PSI:
There is a different piston for each load range shown in the table below. At least 100 psig supply pressure (up to 160 psig) is required for all piston sizes and all pistons are self-aligning.
Load Range (PSI using 1/2" dia. pull-stubs)
1 3/4" (1.75")
2 1/4" (2.25")
2 7/8" (2.875")
3 3/4" (3.75")
(3 Load Ranges)
5 3/4" (5.75")
The PATTI® instrument and method conforms to ASTM D-4541, "Pull-Off Strength of Coatings Using Portable Adhesion Testers".
Also can be used for the testing of coatings on concrete according to ACI 503-30 Appendix A, A.1. 50mm pull-stubs required.
