Paul N. Gardner Co.’s Adhesion Test Analyzer (ATA) is designed to take the guesswork and subjectivity out of rating the classification of adhesion results as defined in the ASTM D3359 standard.

According to the company, the standard’s crosshatch tape test method is a simple qualitative means of classifying a coating’s adhesion, however, if some amount of coating is removed from the substrate after the test, it can be difficult to properly estimate the percentage removed and the resulting classification rating. The ATA can automatically calculate and discover the classification rating of a coating, and since the test site has been digitized in order to calculate the amount of coating removed, it is easy to share results.
