Highest Level of Quality in Floor Coatings with ZwickRoell Testing Machine

Particularly in the area of commercial and industrial applications floor coatings have to withstand extreme loads. To guarantee a high level of quality and durability, KLB Kötztal Lacke + Beschichtungen GmbH uses a testing machine with temperature chamber from ZwickRoell.

KLB Kötztal Lacke und Beschichtungen GmbH, located in Ichenhausen, Bavaria (Germany), develops and sells high-quality reactive resins for the production of robust commercial and industrial flooring with specific product features. Within the scope of product development the reactive resins are evaluated in regards to their strength after hardening.

The resins are poured into a mold and cured. Tensile testing is then performed on the cast specimens in the testing machine. In addition to testing in ambient temperature, tests are also performed in the temperature chamber at -40°C to 120°C. The material properties are tested to ISO 527-2 and 56504.

The testing system consists of an AllroundLine testing machine with Fmax 20 kN. The temperature chamber can simply be pushed into the testing machine to allow for tests in a temperature range of - 80 °C to + 250 °C. Operation of the complete testing system, including temperature control and evaluation of the test results is conveniently handled with the testXpert testing software.
