Anti-Sag Meter

USED IN ASTM D4400, TEST METHOD FOR SAG RESISTANCE OF PAINTS

This is a drawdown blade with a series of notches of successively higher clearance. The notch clearance is related to the degree of sagging and provides a numerical value referred to as the Anti-Sag Index. The higher the Anti-Sag Index the better the sag resistance of the coating. The development of this instrument and its versatility for control and research have been described in published reports.1.2 The Anti-Sag Meter is called for in ASTM3 and Federal4 test methods and is essential equipment in paint laboratories in the U.S.A. and throughout the world. Fig. 2 shows a typical test obtained with this applicator.

Sag and Leveling Test Chart

This form was designed for use with the Leneta Anti-Sag Meter and finds additional use with the Leneta Leveling Test Blade. Its special characteristic is the provision of an applicator path with a considerable length of black in the middle. Thus by making test observations only over the black area, there is automatic compliance with instructions to ignore the leading and trailing edges of the drawdown.
