• Tackiness Tester

Tackiness Tester



Measures the cohesive and adhesive tactile properties of greases and provides numerical and graphical results. 

  • Simple 5 step working procedure
  • Short test time of approximately 120 s
  • Optional temperature control up to 80 °C

The Tackiness Tester, K95200, has been designed to provide an objective and qualitative test for tackiness. The tester quantifies the cohesive and adhesive tactile properties of greases by measuring the sample in Newton's and replaces the old finger sticky test method with a numerical and graphical result.

Greases are widely used in machinery and automotive components to protect components from frictional and wear losses. As a result, interaction properties like tackiness become crucial factors and often dictate their performance, especially when it comes to bearing lubrication. This property is related to microstructural aspects of grease such as thickener network, wetting agents and additives.
