Drying Time Recorder

drying-time-test-result.pngThe various stages of drying and curing that occur in films are easy to detect but difficult to define in terms of chemical and physical principles. In order to evaluate them objectively it is necessary to use instrumentation under controlled conditions.
BYK-Gardner offers the versatile BK Drying Time Recorder to help quantify the various stages of film curing and drying, deliver
reproducible results, and guarantee highest efficiency:

■ Simultaneous testing of 6 samples – saves time
■ Three different speeds: 6-12-24 hrs – for any application
■ Alternative speeds available upon request Procedure
■ Coat the glass strip using the film applicator and holder (order separately below)
■ The drying of the paint starts here. If you prepare multiple panels at different times note the time when the draw down was made and add it to the time the sample is in the recorder
■ Place needles on the sample strip and select the speed by adjusting the speed switch
■ Turn the recorder on – the unit will automatically switch off at the end of the test
■ Evaluate the results (see figure at right)
