January 24, 2014

Brookfield Engineering offers the new TA-LTT Loop Tack Tester for use with the CT3 Tester. The TA-LTT Loop Tack Tester is designed for testing the adhesive strength of materials per ASTM D2979. The sample is adhered to a slide that is placed in the bottom fixture. The top of the sample is then gripped by the upper clamp and the CT3 Tester applies tension, measuring the force required to break the adhesive bond. The Brookfield CT3 Tester operates in both compression and tension modes.
