BROOKFIELD ENGINEERING LABORATORIES: Tack Tester

April 16, 2012

The TA-ATT adhesive tack tester is designed to test the stickiness of adhesive strips and tapes. The company’s TexturePro CT software, when used with the CT3 tester, reportedly enables operators to automate test procedures and generate valuable data for analyzing the adhesive properties of their products.

The CT3 tester combines simplicity of operation with expanded test method capability and operates in both compression and tension modes. A variety of standard probes (e.g., cones, cylinders, blades, balls, punches) and fixtures (e.g., extrusion cell, shear cell, grips, etc.) are available for a variety of applications. The tester is used with Brookfield’s TA-RT rotary base table.
