MINIMUM FILM FORMING TEMPERATURE 90 INSTRUMENT

MFFT 90
RHOPOINT PAINTLAB+ MINIMUM FILM FORMING TEMPERATURE

Easy-To-Use With Touch Screen Interface Minimum Film Forming Temperature  For Water Base Coating Measurement Applications

Rhopoint Minimum Film Forming Temperature 90 instrument is the industry leading instrument for measuring the MFFT of water based material. MFFT definition “The Lowest Temperature at which a latex, emulsion or adhesive will uniformly coalesce when laid on a substrate as a thin film”.  Rhopoint MFFT work by holding a very accurate temperature gradient across the nickel plated copper platen.

The  MFFT 90 instrument is designed and built with easy to use touch screen interface, digital MFFT temperature calculation and output to handy results labels. These additions to the trusted Rhopoint MFFT make the instrument easier to operate with improved certainty of results.

The temperature bar consists of a copper platen with an electronically imposed temperature gradient. Built in temperature sensors monitor the temperature across the platen, a graph of the gradient is displayed on the touch screen.

Purge gas is integrally dried, and flows over the platen via a sintered distribution block. The hinged perspex cover provides thermal and atmospheric insulation whilst allowing constant visual inspection of a test. A cursor is moved to indicate the identified MFFT point; the instrument calculates and displays the temperature in the required units.
