Cross Hatch Cutter
The Cross Hatch Cutter is a multi-blade cutting tool which allows 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.
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.
Simple operation, each Cross Hatch Cutter has 6 cutting blades spaced either 1mm or 2mm apart. Make one cutting pass through to the substrate. This makes 6 cuts in the
coating. A second pass at 90° makes a square lattice pattern. Lightly brush than apply the Adhesion Test Tape over the cut lattice section and within 5 minutes remove the Tape. Classify the cut area with the Viewing Lens according to the
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 correct adhesion to the coating.
Supplied in a Foam-Filled Carrying Case with Adhesion Test Tape 50mm and a x3 Illuminated Magnifier.
