The TQC Cross Cut Adhesion Test Basic Cutter is used to test the adhesion of dry coats of paint on their substrate by means of a series of cuts through the coating. Two series of parallel cuts cross angled to each other to obtain a pattern of 25 or 100 similar squares. The ruled area is evaluated by using a table chart after a short treatment with a stiff brush, or adhesive tape for hard substrates.
The cutting knife of the TQC Cross Cut Adhesion Test Basic Cutter is easy to exchange without the use of extra tools. The self positioning knife bracket of the TQC Cross Cut Adhesion Test Basic Cutter ensures equal pressure on the cutting knife.
