Cross Hatch Cutter Kit
The cross hatch cutter kit will allow an assessment to be made of the adhesion resistance of coatings to separation from substrates when a right-angled lattice pattern is cut into the coating and penetrates through to the substrate. Coating or painting is cut into small squares using cross cuts and reduces lateral bonding, and the adhesion assessed against ISO, ASTM or customer specifications. The coating thickness determines the cutter size used. The 1mm cutter is suitable for coatings under 60 microns; the 2mm cutter is suitable for coatings over 60 microns. Cross hatch adhesion test also known as cross hatch tester
   

Complete procedure of cross hatch cutter kit is very simple. Cross hatch cutter has 6 cutting blades spaced either 1mm or 2mm apart, one cutting pass makes 6 cuts in the coating, a second pass at 90° makes a square lattice pattern. Apply special adhesive tape over cut section and within 5 minutes remove tape. Classify the cut area according to the relevant national standard classification guide. Cross hatch test or crosshatch tester conforms to BS 3900:E6, ASTM D 3359, BS/DIN EN ISO 2409

Cross hatch cutter blades are ground onto 6 cutting sides, so that when one cutting side becomes blunt there are a further 5 cutting sides to use. Therefore giving a 1/3 rd extra life over conventional 4 sided models.We supply complete cross hatch kits, spare adhesive tapes and accessories.
