Cross Hatch Cutter Adhesion Test Kit – CC2000 Basic Range

The Cross Hatch Adhesion Test is used to test the adhesion of dry coats of paint on their substrate by means of a series of cuts through the coating. Two series of parallel cuts cross angled to each other to obtain a pattern of 25 or 100 similar squares. The ruled area is evaluated by using a table chart after a short treatment with a stiff brush, or adhesive tape for hard substrates.

The cutting knife of this Cross Hatch Adhesion Test Cutter is easy to exchange without the use of extra tools and having a self positioning knife bracket ensures equal pressure on the cutting knife.

Directions for use:

Simply make a cutting pass through the coating to the substrate, this will leave 6 parallel cuts in the coating. Then make a second pass at 90º to the first to make a square lattice pattern.  Apply a length of adhesive tape over the lattice pattern & remove tape within 5 minutes.  You can then classify the test area using the supplied magnifier to the relevant national standard.

ISO 2409:

  • 1 mm. spacing for coatings up to 60 µm on hard substrates
  • 2 mm. spacing for coatings up to 60 µm on soft substrates
  • 2 mm. spacing for coatings from 61 to 120 µm on both hard and soft substrates
  • 3 mm. spacing for coatings from 121 µm to 250 µm on both hard / soft substrates

ASTM D3359:

  • 1 mm. spacing for coatings up to 50 µm
  • 1,5 mm. spacing for coatings from 50 to 125 µm
