ChemInstruments’ new Dynamic Shear tester measures shear force rather than time to failure providing a clearer understanding of an adhesive’s chemistry. Dynamic shear testing offers a faster, more accurate representation of the adhesives ability to resist polymer disentanglement.
Dynamic Shear tester provides graphing capability to show the actual adhesive
holding power with one simple test, instead of running multiple hang tests and
plotting statistical time-to-failure.
The time to collect test data is dramatically reduced and the integrity
of the collected data is improved with the Dynamic Shear tester, as compared
with typical shear testing methods.
The data acquisition
system, which interfaces with ChemInstruments EZ-Lab software, uses a
state-of-the-art microprocessor controlled force measurement package that
combines accuracy with ease of use. The data acquisition system simultaneously
controls test motion, identifies test forces, stores data and interfaces with
the EZ-Lab data management system making data acquisition and data management
easier, while providing more powerful analytical capabilities.
Dynamic Shear tester meets the standards specified in ASTM and FINAT test
methods including: ASTM D 1002, D 3163, D 3164 and FINAT FTM 18.
