BEND TEST CONICAL MANDREL PRO – SP1830
The TQC Bend Test Conical Mandrel “Pro” is a laboratory apparatus to bend coated test panels over a conical shaped mandrel 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 in accordance with ISO 6860 and ASTM D522. The conical shape of the bending area allows the deformation of the test panel and examination of the elasticity range of a coating over any diameter between 3.1 and 38 mm in one single test. The sample panel is secured to the apparatus by means of a quick lever handle that lock and unlocks the panel in a split second using just hand.
