Cross Hatch Cutter Adhesion Test Kit with Guide Wheel – CC3000 Range

The Cross Hatch Adhesion Test Kit CC3000 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 depth of the Cross Hatch Cutter within the CC3000 range can be adjusted while the cutter is guided by two ball bearings to ensure reproducible results and the depth of the cutter is adjustable to measure coatings up to 250 µm thick.

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
