Drying Time Tester
Purpose and Application
The Drying Time Tester, Model 415, consists of an light alloy cylinder which is fixed to a stand. The
pressure spring integrated in the cylinder facilitates a plunger force of up to 250 N which is applied to the
coating in a perpendicular motion by way of a lever mechanism.
The clearance between the plunger and the base table can be set to the thickness of the test panel by
adjusting the lever bracket accordingly. Loading weights (20 g and 200 g) with a diameter of
24 mm are included in the scope of delivery for standardized loads of less than 2 kg (20 N).
To achieve a uniform distribution of the contact pressure a cylindrical soft rubber disk with a diameter
of 22 mm, a thickness of (5 ± 0.5) mm and a hardness of (50 ± 5) IRHD in accordance with DIN
ISO 48, is used.
A glass tube Ballotini dispenser to measure degree of dryness 1 is available as accessory.
