Gardco introduces Cylindrical Bend Test testing instrument

Gardco’s new instrument, the TQC Cylindrical Bend Test, is a robust yet elegant testing instrument to indicate the elasticity, elongation and adhesion of a paint film at bending stress. The Cylindrical Bend Test is designed to perform tests according to the latest ISO 1519 standards for "Assessing the resistance of a coating, paint, varnish or related products to cracking and/or detachment from a surface when, subjected to bending around a cylindrical mandrel under standard conditions."

The Cylindrical Bend Test is made of anodized aluminum and stainless steel, and features an ergonomic clamping device for test panels, a large knob on the bending arm for smooth and easy bending and a desk-top mandrel holder which can also be mounted to the wall for convenience. The instrument will bend test panels up to 150 x 100 mm.

SP1820 includes the Cylindrical Bend Test 100 mm, a desk-top mandrel holder with a set of 14 mandrels of diameters 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, 16, 19, 20, 25 and 32 mm.

SP1822 includes the Cylindrical Bend Test 100 mm, a desk-top mandrel holder with a set of 7 mandrels with diameters of 1/8, 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, 3/4 and 1 inch.

The SP1820 complies to ISO 1519. Look up the appropriate standard for a correct execution of the test. Also refer to ISO 1512-ISO 1514-ISO 2808-ISO 3270. SP1822 complies to ASTM D522.
