The Rolldown laminates an adhesive coated material to a test substrate. The prepared sample can then be used in a number of differing test procedures. The mechanics of the Rolldown ensures that test samples are prepared at a stable laminating speed and with consistent pressure. The Rolldown comes in two versions. The single roll version prepares one sample at a time. The triple roll version reduces sample preparation time by accommodating three samples at a time. Both machines meet the requirements of PSTC Appendage B, Section 2.7 and ASTM D 3330 Section 5.4.  This Rolldown can also perform FINAT testing according to Section 3.2 on Test Equipment. The Rolldown is one of a handful of devices that are a must for any development or QC laboratory that wishes to ensure the highest quality data. Properly prepared samples help create accurate and credible data.
