Introducing the Next Generation PosiTest AT-A Automatic Adhesion Tester

Compensates for misalignment with a self-aligning actuator

Published: Wednesday, December 23, 2015 - 10:59

(DeFelsko: Ogdensburg NY) -- DeFelsko is excited to announce the next-generation PosiTest AT-A Automatic Adhesion Tester. The American-made PosiTest AT series measures the adhesion of coatings to metal, wood, concrete and other rigid substrates.

New features include a larger, impact- and scratch-resistant color touchscreen display with keypad; user-adjustable pull rate, pull limit, and hold time; and the ability to record the results as pass/fail and the nature of fracture—e.g., cohesive, adhesive, and glue failures.

Wirelessly connect to your smart device using DeFelsco’s free app to create and share customized, professional reports. Add images, notes, and more using the camera and keyboard—ideal for capturing a picture of the dolly face.

Each PosiTest AT compensates for misalignment with a self-aligning actuator, enabling evenly distributed pull-off force on both smooth and uneven coating surfaces. Conforms to national and international standards, including ASTM D4541 and ISO 4624.
