Dynamic Shear Tester

Dynamic Shear

Quickly measure shear resistance by force rather than time and get a clearer understanding of your adhesive's chemistry. Dynamic shear testing offers a faster, more accurate representation of an adhesives ability to resist polymer disentanglement. Using the ChemInstruments Dynamic Shear, you can graph the actual holding power with one simple test instead of running multiple hang tests and plotting their statistical time-to-fail. The time to collect the data and the integrity of that collected data is considerably better using this device as compared to typical shear testing methods. The Dynamic Shear meets the standards specified in ASTM and FINAT test methods. The included EZ Lab software makes data acquisition and data management easier and provides more powerful analysis capabilities.

Data Acquisition System

The ChemInstruments electronic data acquisition system is a state-of-the-art microprocessor controlled force measurement package that combines accuracy with ease of use. This system simultaneously controls test motion, reads the force of a test from a load cell, stores that data in its memory and interfaces with EZ-Lab data management software to show the results graphically.

  • Records 400 data points per second during a test interval based on selected test speed
  • Displays the average, high and low measured force results immediately upon completion of a test
  • Export data by RS-232 connection to a local PC with our EZ-Lab software
  • Displays test values in grams, kilograms, ounces, pounds or Newtons

EZ-Lab Compatible

Remote setup, operational control and enhanced data collection are all possible when coupled with our EZ-Lab data management software. This application requires an external PC. (See more information about the EZ-Lab product)
