Paints and coatings are the most commonly used methods to protect substrates and surfaces from any type of effect from environmental factors. The environmental factors have a great impact on the quality and durability of a product hence they need to remain safe from the environmental factors. The paints and coatings need to be efficient enough to ensure that the safety of substrates is not compromised at any cost. The adhesion strength of paints is one of the major properties that define its efficiency in providing the best safety to the substrate to which it is applied. The cross hatch tester is the instrument that is used for testing the efficiency of the paint and coatings by testing their adhesion strength.
The cross hatch tester is used for making a big X on the paint coating that has been applied to a substrate. After the X has been made, a pressure sensitive tape is applied on the X, and it is peeled off. With the tape, the paint also comes off of the substrate which gives the adhesion strength of the paint.
