A Dutch manufacturer of measuring and testing equipment for coatings-related field and lab use recently introduced a new product for measuring and defining the stages of the drying process of paints and coatings.

Drying Time Recorder
TQC Inc.

The TQC Drying Time Recorder is designed to measure the stages of the drying process.

TQC Inc. (Capelle aan den Ijssel, The Netherlands) released the TQC Drying Time Recorder, a digital machine that conforms to the Beck Koller method of measuring drying time. The machine, with a digital display, meets ASTM D5895, ISO 9117-4 and DIN EN 14022, according to the company.

The tool comes with two reusable glass beds of 100 by 350 by 3 millimeters, and has six tracks. It is powered by a 24-volt DC power supply.

The Drying Time Recorder features a broad time range, which allows the user to set the time anywhere from one minute to 200 hours, TQC says. It can test at temperatures from -20 degrees Celsius (-4 degrees Fahrenheit) to 70C (158F).
