Cross Hatch Cutter is a multi-blade cutting tool which enables an assessment to be made of the adhesion resistance of coatings to separation from substrates.
The coating thickness determines the Cross Hatch Cutter size used.The 1mm Cross Hatch Cutter is suitable for coatings under 60 microns. The 2mm Cross Hatch Cutter is suitable for coatings over 60 microns.
Cross Hatch Cutter is supplied in an industrial Carrying Case with Adhesion Test Tape (60m) and an x3 Illuminated Magnifier.
The Cross Hatch Cutter Compliant to ISO 2409 and ISO 16276-2.
Also known as Cross Hatch Adhesion Tester and Cross Cut Adhesion Tester.
Multiple coatings can be tested for the assessment of the resistance to separation of individual layers of the coating from each other.
The hardened tool steel cutting blades are precision-ground with 6 cutting sides so that when one cutting side becomes blunt there are a further 5 cutting sides to use.
The Adhesion Test Tape has an adhesive strength of 9.5N per 25mm width and is transparent to ensure the correct adhesion to the coating.
