Cylindrical Mandrel Bend Tester

Cylindrical Mandrel Bend Tester

BGD 563 Cylindrical Mandrel Bend Tester is very easy to use instrument to test and determine elasticity, adhesion and elongation properties of coated metal sheet like powder coating, paint, varnish or related product. Cylindrical mandrel tester panel holder accepts panels measuring up to 50mm (2") wide, which are held firmly by the clamp. BS EN ISO 15015 calls for panels of 50mm x 100mm, of a thickness of up to 1mm. It complies with ISO 1519, ASTM D522 and DIN 53152. It is used to assess the coating layers of the pigmented paints, the varnishes and relevant products. It is special instrument for testing crack resistance or stripping performances from the metal plates at bending around the cylindrical shaft. Procedures can be based on pass/fail or diameter to failure methods.

Cylindrical mandrel bend tester is used to test the resistance of a coating of paint, varnish or related product to cracking or detachment from a metal panel, after the panel has been bent around a cylindrical mandrel. Cylindrical mandrel test is a very easy and used as a simple pass/fail test at a known diameter, by using successively smaller mandrels until cracking is observed. Sample later can be used for examining the coating for cracking, flaking, or other damage. Cylindrical mandrel bend tester can be adjusted to the diameter of the mandrel used and the mandrels are easily interchangeable.
