Conical Bending mandrel is a lab testing apparatus which is used to bend the coated metal substrates over a mandrel of acone shape to measure the elasticity of paints and varnishes or resistance to cracking. The instrument is designed as per the standards ASTM D522 and ISO 6860.The conical shape allows deforming the test panel to assess the quality of the coated material. It is a compact and table-top instrument. The device is equipped with a cam lever which ensures aquick and rapid change of the sample shape. The instrument is widely used in paint & plating industries, metal industries, and automotive industries to measure the adhesion and flexibility properties of coatings when they are repeatedly subjected to bending stress.
