The Proceq DY-2 family of automated pull-off testers covers the complete range of pull-off applications with unmatched ease of operation and the ability to store a complete record of the testing procedure.
Pull-off or adhesion (bond) testing is one of the most widely used testing methods in the construction industry. It has long been known that one of the major influences on the result of a pull-off test is the operator influence in applying load at a constant rate during testing. Thanks to its integrated feedback-controlled motor, Proceq DY-2 completely removes operator influence by providing a fully automated test at a constant load-rate that can be verified.
Applied standards and norms: EN 1542, EN 1015-12, EN 1348, ISO 4624, BS 1881 Part 207, ASTM D4541, ASTM C1583, ASTM D7234-05, ASTM D7522, ZTV-SIB 90.
Failure mode reporting
Most pull-off testing standards require the operator to record the mode of failure. Proceq DY-2 is unique in that it allows this information to be automatically identified and saved along with the test result. For example “B 100%” indicates a complete failure in the overlay or repair material.
Typical adhesives used are:
- Devcon 2 Ton Epoxy
- Loctite 907, Loctite 3430
- Sikadur 30, Sikadur 31
- Araldite Regular/Rapid
