2 … the new Elcometer 510 Model S & T Elcometer are pleased to announce the launch of their new Elcometer 510 Automatic Pull Off Adhesion Tester…… the new Elcometer 510 Model S & T
3 Elcometer 510 – Key Features Automatic hydraulic pump ensures smooth and continuous pressure application for consistent repeatable resultsDust and water resistantrugged design to IP64Fully adjustable pull rates 0.1 – 1.4MPa/s (15-203psi) to meet national and international standardsInterchangeable units:MPa, psi, N/mm² and NCan be used with 10, 14.2, 20 and 50mm diameter dolliesUser definable measurement range with an accuracy of ±1% of full scale:10mm dolly: 100MPa (14400psi)14.2mm dolly: 50MPa (7200psi)20mm dolly: 25MPa (3600psi)50mm dolly: 4MPa (580psi)User definable limits with unique pressure hold and release functionA range of standard and thin substrate actuator skirts (compatible with the Elcometer 506) are available for testing coatings on thick, thin, flat or convex substratesStore up to 10,000 readings, with individual pull rate graphs in up to 2,500 alpha numerical batches, complete with attribute failure informationUSB and Bluetooth® data output - Compatible with ElcoMaster™ App for iPhone, iPod, iPad and Android mobile devices.
5 The Model Range Elcometer 510 has two models: Model S: An entry level gauge, powered by batteries, with defined pull rates, 60 reading memory & USB output to ElcoMaster 2.0;Model T: All the features of the Model S, but can be powered by batteries and/or AC Mains, USB & Bluetooth (Android and iPhone, iPad, iPod), up to 60,000 readings in 2,500 alphanumeric batches which can store:the reading,cohesive/ adhesive attribute information,pull rate graphThe Model T also has user a definable limit with a unique‘Pull to Limit’ setting and an in field adhesion calibrationverification mode.

15 Pull To Limit / Pull to Max The Elcometer 510 Model T can have a user defined limit:Some specifications require coatings to be tested to a maximum pull-off strength. Users can set a limit value and a limit hold time (how long pressure is maintained at the limit value until the gauge rewinds to zero) and then select:Pull to Limit: the gauge will increase the pressure at the defined pull rate until the limit has been reached and maintained for the set hold time or the dolly pulls off, whichever occurs first after which, the gauge re-winds to ‘zero’; orPull to Maximum: the gauge will increase the pressure until the maximum pressure rate for the selected dolly size / pull rate combination has been reached or the dolly pulls off, whichever occurs first, at which point the gauge automatically re-winds to ‘zero’.A limit can be set for individual readings (when in Immediate mode) or individual limits can be set for each batch (when in Batching).
17 Pull Rate GraphThe Elcometer 510 Model T can also store the individual pull rate graphThis unique feature allows users to record the load against time graph and display it on an inspection report.A graphical representation of the increase in pressure applied over time of test, based on the pull rate and dolly diameter set for the batch.The graph is displayed on screen above the pressure reading and attribute data (if set) using the resolution defined by the user via Batch/New Batch/Rate Graph.The individual graphs can be reviewed within the gauge underBatch/ Review Batch/ Readings & Rate Graph
19 Cohesive / Adhesive Failure Attributes Many National and International Standards, including ISO 4624 & ASTM D4541, require the user to record not only the pull-off force but also the nature of the failure.The bottom of the dolly is examined alongside the ‘fractured’ coating, the percentage cohesive and % adhesive failure is assessed and recorded together with the pull off reading.In accordance with Standards, the information is displayed as: ##.## MPa N% A M% A/B,Where:##.## is the Pull Force in MPa or other measurement unit (psi, N or Nmm-2)N% is the Cohesive failure percentage (to the nearest 10%) and ‘A’ is the Cohesive failure layer M% is the Adhesive failure percentage (to the nearest 10%) and ‘A/B’ is the Intercoat adhesive failure layers
20 Cohesive / Adhesive Failure Attributes d The number of layers can be user defined for each batch via Batch/New Batch/Number of Layers. This will affect the number of layers available for selection during attribute recording. The maximum number of layers available is five, excluding the substrate and glue.
21 Cohesive / Adhesive Failure Attributes For example:14.26 MPa 40% B 30% B/Cthe coating fractured at a pull force of MPa,with 40% of the dolly area associated with cohesive failure of layer 1 and30% of the dolly area associated with an intercoat adhesive failure between layers 1 and 2The cohesive failure percentage plus the adhesive failure percentage does not have to equal 100%, but cannot exceed 100%Should the dolly not fail, the pull force is recorded together with the greater than symbol (>) the pull force obtained.For example: >25MPa 40% B 30% B/C
22 Cohesive / Adhesive Failure Attributes In addition to recording the % cohesive and adhesive failure, ISO 4624 & ASTM D4541, require the user to also record whether the dolly was cut (and if so, with what type of tool; knife or dolly cutter); and if a support ring was used (and if so, the dimensions of the support ring).The Elcometer 510 also allows this information to be recorded within the batch header information – which is sent to ElcoMaster alongside the measurement and attribute data.Each Elcometer 510 has an internal support ring connected to the actuator head – this is called the Skirt. The user identifies the skirt type used (thin substrate, standard skirt, etc.) within the batch header, and the dimensions of the appropriate support ring are reported within ElcoMaster.
24 Verifying the Gauge Calibration & Accuracy The Elcometer 510 is factory calibrated however, the calibration and accuracy of the gauge can be verified in the field at any time using the Elcometer Adhesion Verification Unit (AVU).Connect the Elcometer 510 to the Elcometer AVU, select “Menu/ Verify Calibration” and follow the on screen instructions.The calibration verification process tests the gauge’s performance at three pressure points.
26 ElcoMaster™ 2.0The new Elcometer 510 is compatible with ElcoMaster™ 2.0 and ElcoMaster Mobile:Live gauge readings, and graphs can be transferred and stored in a batch within ElcoMaster™, as each measurement is taken.Batch data can be downloaded to PC or mobile device for archiving and report generation.Users can upgrade their gauges to the latest software release in the field.Compatible with Cloud Computing; data can be accessed by authorised users of the Cloud Account via secure log-in from anywhere in the world.Compatible with iPod, iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices.
31 Calibration Certificates Each Elcometer 510 is supplied with aCalibration Certificate as standard.Gauges are calibrated using factory reference load cell unit, in accordance with Elcometer’s certification procedures.
32 2 Year Extended Warranty The new Elcometer 510 Automatic Pull-Off Adhesion Tester is supplied with one year warranty as standard.Customers can extend this warranty free of charge within 60 days of purchase, by simply clicking the “Extend Your Warranty” tab on the Elcometer website.An A6 card is supplied with all gauges informing the customer of this 2nd year extension.
