Anti-Sag Meter


Standards: ASTM D3730, D4400

Anti-Sag Meter


Coatings applied on non-horizontal surfaces will sag due to gravity. Sag resistance is a factor of the composition and viscosity of the coating, as well as the applied thickness.

The Anti-Sag meter allows quantification of the sagging properties of coatings.

  • Quick test of the sagging of coatings on non-horizontal surfaces
  • Available in most coating thickness ranges
Test charts available. For more information see our test chart page.



 

Features

The applicator is a U-shaped drawdown bar with a series of 1/4 inch (6.4 mm) wide notches of varying clearances, spaced 1/16 inch (1.6 mm) apart. It is 5 inches (127 mm) wide and produces a total film width of 3-3/8 inches (86 mm). When a drawdown is made, a series of parallel stripes of different wet film thickness will be formed. This panel is placed on a vertical surface with the stripes horizontal and the thickest stripe lowest.

As the film stripes sag downward, some of the uncoated 1/16 inch (1.6 mm) spaces may become entirely covered. The clearance of the gap that produces the thickest film stripe, not sagging completely to the stripe below, is the anti-sag index of the coating.
