Drying Time Recorder

Product Description:

Qualtech Products Industry Drying Time Recorder is a precision instrument to evaluate the various stages of drying and curing when applying surface coatings and films on substrates.

The different stages of drying and curing are easy to detect, but difficult to define in terms of chemical and physical methodology.

In order to evaluate the Drying Stages of paint and coatings professionally and accurately, it is necessary to use a Drying Time Recorder under controlled test conditions.

This precision Drying Time Recorder determines the various stages of film curing and drying time with high precision and high repeatability to deliver reproducible results and to ensure high efficiency.

This professional Drying Time Recorder is designed and engineered to test and record the Drying Time and Gelation Behavior of paints and coatings.

To complete a Drying Time Test the sample paint or sample coating is applied onto a glass panel with the size of 300 mm × 25 mm (12″ × 1″) using a Cube Applicator. After the application of the sample paint or sample coating hemispherical needles travel simultaneously on six parallel test tracks for a specified time, e.g. 6, 12, 24 and 48 hours. Custom programmed sample test times are available, please specify when ordering.

The graduation at the front of the Drying Time Tester ensures the user-friendly evaluation of the Drying Time Stages in accordance with the preset drying speed:

  1. Evaporation of the Solvent: Deep pear-shaped impression
  2. Sol-gel Transition: Continuous track
  3. Dry Surface: Interrupted track
  4. Final Drying Stage: The needle no longer penetrates the film

This professional Drying Time Recorder is designed and engineered in accordance with international test standards including:
