Chemicals, adhesives and coatings play a crucial role in almost every area of our lives, so testing their performance is vital.

If they are designed to peel, they should do so consistently and predictably.

If they are designed not to fail, then their behaviour before and at failure, in adhesion and cohesion, also matter.

Mecmesin peel and pull-off testers combine with our powerful Emperor™ control software to provide all you need. Its control and data analysis capabilities ensure accurate and repeatable testing every time.

From high-performance plasma coatings for aerospace to extruded catalyst carriers right through to the humble self-adhesive label, Mecmesin has a test solution for you.

Test to ASTM, BS EN, ISO, DIN, CEN, Afera, FINAT, PSTC and TLMI

Alumina sphere crush test

Case study
Our customer’s quality laboratory decided to upgrade their equipment and contacted G.T. Michelli Co. to provide them with a new system. Initially we evaluated a Mecmesin competitor’s system, and it failed to meet the standards required. We had recently sold a Mecmesin torque tester to another customer and so were aware of the force test stands the company manufactures. I contacted Mecmesin’s technical sales engineers and supplied some samples and within days a complete solution was developed and demonstrated. This system now performs our customer’s tests seamlessly, with higher accuracy and less uncertainty than ever before. The system is so easy to use and the software so intuitive that the operator needed very little assistance!

he test solution allows us to assess the ability of our potassium sorbate suppliers to provide a grade that will not physically deteriorate through blending and storage, yet will enable us to extend the shelf life of our products, whilst enjoying the savings from reduced manufacturing costs. Mecmesin were exceedingly helpful at first contact and were very knowledgeable and professional throughout the process of test development. The company made great effort to ensure we achieved a working, reliable, repeatable and reproducible system that met all our requirements at a sensible price.

MultiTest Alphatek high performance plasma coating butt-joint test equipment
The MultiTest 1-i has been purchased to test the physical properties of raw materials and finished products. The 10N loadcell is able to measure to two decimal places, which gives a very sensitive and accurate reading, and this test works very well. The MultiTest 1-i meets our needs and with time has proved user friendly.
