Refurbishing set for Cupping test SP4200 model

Depending on the frequency of use and sample material the indenter of a cupping test may wear over time. A worn indenter may lead to incorrect test results. In order to bring back the cupping test in original condition a refurbish-kit is available which allows easy and simple replacement of the indenter by the user. This kit contains an indenter and a special tool to remove the worn indenter and tighten the new part.

This kit is suitable for the older, round shape TQC cupping testers, model SP4200.



Art. No. SP4208

Automatic cupping tester

The TQC Automatic Cupping Tester allows to perform a cupping (Erichsen / Dent) test on coated steel panels to define the resistance of paint, varnish or related products to cracking and/or detachment from a metal substrate when subjected to gradual deformation by indentation under standard conditions. The test is either used as a “pass / fail” test by testing to a specified depth or defining the minimum depth at which a coating fails by gradually increasing the indentation. The ISO 1520 standard requires panels to be slowly deformed at a steady rate between 0,1 mm/s and 0,3 mm/s without interruption. Especially with thicker steel panels hand-operated testers not always allow an uninterrupted deformation. The TQC Automatic Cupping Tester is driven by a micro-step controlled electro motor which allows precise and steady deformation with 0,01 mm steps. Operation is intuitive by means of a jog-dial switch and a multi-lingual operating menu on a large illuminated display. An integrated LED powered sample illumination system comforts examining the coating under test. To guarantee maximum visibility of all possible types of surface including high gloss, matte or colored samples the angle of the LED light can be set. Choose light from just one or all directions. The strength of the LED’s is adjustable but also the colors can be changed to achieve maximum contrast. Mandatory test in Qualicoat and QIB accredited laboratories. Standards EN-ISO 1520, DIN 53156, DIN 53232, BS 3900-E4, NBN T22-104, NFT 30 019. Look up the appropriate  standard for a correct execution of the test.

Manual Cupping Test

Revolutionary apparatus for testing the resistivity of coatings at various stages of deformation in accordance with ISO 1520. The built in gear-box minimizes the manual force which is required to deform the test panel, allowing to perform a smooth deformation. The degree or deformation is digitally displayed at a resolution of 0.01 mm. Mandatory test in Qualicoat, QIB and GSB accredited laboratories.


This instrument is a conductivity moisture meter specifically designed for the timber industry. The instrument has eight calibration scales, enabling the user to take accurate moisture measurements in 150 wood species. Moisture measurements can be taken using the integral pin electrodes, or using the heavy duty moisture probe. When used with the temperature probe, the moisture measurements are automatically corrected with respect to temperature. A calibration tester is integrated into the protective cap.
