Introducing the New Adhesion Test Analyzer

Easily Read Results of ASTM D3359: Standard Test Methods for Rating Adhesion by Tape Test

The Adhesion Test Analyzer (ATA) takes all of the guess work and subjectivity out of rating the classification of your adhesion results as defined in the ASTM D3359 standard, and is accomplished with one simple instrument.

The cross hatch tape test method, also known as ASTM D3359, is a simple qualitative means of classifying a coating's adhesion. The problem with this method alone is that if some amount of coating is removed from the substrate after the test, it can be difficult to properly estimate the percentage removed and the resulting classification rating.

US Patent #9,841,369

But the ATA can automatically calculate and discover the classification rating of a coating. Since the test site has been digitized in order to calculate the amount of coating removed, it is easy to share electronically with interested parties.


  • Take the guesswork out of your test results
  • Improve the repeatability of your testing program
  • Have confidence in the Classification Rating regardless of user
  • Easily share test results electronically with interested parties
  • Item No. PA-917010
