Determination of the gel time of powder coatings

The gelation of powder coatings in accordance with DIN ISO 8130-6 (DIN 55 990) is defined as the amount of time required to transfer a specific volume of a powder coating upon melting under defined conditions to a non-deformable state.

To determine these gel time of powder coating, our Heating Block PL 2 is used according DIN ISO 8130-6 with a spherical depression (trough).

With the temperature control unit with integrated stopwatch TCT-1, the temperature of the heating block is optimally controlled. In a heated block PL 2 is a security-temperature limiter installed with 270 ° C. This switches on reaching the filament voltage from irreversible.
