Impact Testing

The MULTI GRIT TESTER 508 VDA is a stone-hammer-blow testing instrument that was originally developed in collaboration with the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), but which also meets the requirements of national and international standards. The MULTI GRIT TESTER 508 VDA is for evaluating the performance of single- and multi-layer paints and similar coatings when subject to the stresses caused by low-mass, high-speed impacting objects (such as those encountered on road and rail vehicles, and traffic equipment). The new MULTI GRIT TESTER 508 SAE is a stone-hammer-blow testing instrument which (in contrast to the VDA version) is equipped with an adjustable impact angle.
