Pull Off Tester - DY-225

Pull Off Tester - DY-2 Family

 

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 test.

Pull-off or adhesion testing is one of the most widely used test methods in the construction industry. This is reflected in the huge number of standards dedicated to the method covering applications such as adhesion of various concrete coatings to testing the tensile strength of concrete.

 

Major influences on the result of the pull-off test

It has long been known that one of the major influences on the result of a pull-off test is the operator influence in the application of a constant load rate. The DY-2 with its integrated feedback controlled motor removes this variable completely by providing a fully automated test at a constant load rate which can be verified.

 

Adhesion testing

The strength of the tensile shows the composition of the surface straight after measuring. Like this, concrete coating can be tested due to the tensile strength which also shows the concrete's casting.

 

 

 

Features

The DY-2 is further unique in that it records every single test parameter required by the specification.

  • Time and date of the test
  • Test disc size
  • Maximum load applied
  • Automatic calculation of bond strength
  • Applied load rate with graphical record
  • Complete time of test
  • Failure mode
Applications
Standardization

The following standards can be applied to the pull off tester:

  • EN 1542
  • EN 1015-12
  • EN 1348
  • ISO 4624
  • BS 1881
    Part 207
  • ASTM D 4541
  • ASTM C 1583
  • ASTM D 7234-05
  • ASTM D 7522
  • ZTV-SIB 90
Product Variations
  • DY-206 has increased accuracy for low strength applications
    such as testing adhesive strength of mortars and renders. 
  • DY-216 covering most applications.
  • DY-225 for very high strength applications such as testing of fibre reinforced polymers bonded to concrete structures or testing the bond strength of repair and overlay materials.
  • Pull off tester Dyna Estrich is specially designed to measure the adhesive strength of floor coatings.
