Sag Index Applicators
Sag Index Applicator is equipped with step wise coating heights to form of a straight scraping knife, and, depending on the model. It has adjacent gaps of variable depths.
Sag Index applicator is suitable for applying different layers of film, of increasing thickness.
Sag Index applicator is very much recommended tool for testing opacity or hiding power of a certain product. Each adjacent track is thicker than the last. This test panel is then held vertically.
The sag index value is determined as being the first track which does not sag into the one below (with the thickest at the bottom). The step interval between each track indicates sag. Sag Index used to determine the level of Wet Film Thickness of Paint Film. It will help to evaluate visually for sag resistance of coating.
The instrument is commonly used in laboratories for quality control and experimental purposes for various fields like Paint, ink & Powder Coating Industries. The applicators may be used with the following test methods (amongst others): BEL-33900 DS/ISO 2813, ASTM D3258, D3265.
