M2000 Material Bond Tester

M2000 Bond tester kit

This technically advanced, accurate instrument is suitable for use in the laboratory, workshop and on site.

Bond Testing

Adequate direct tensile strength or bonding strength between two layers is important if repairs to concrete structures or additional overlays and screeding on existing concrete is to be structurally sound. The pull-off test as a means of projecting the compressive strength of concrete and other materials involves bonding a circular steel disc to the surface by means of an epoxy resin adhesive. A controlled tensile force is then applied to the disc, and as the strength of the bond is greater than that of the material under stress it will eventually fail in tension. From the area of the disc and the force applied at failure it is possible to calculate a nominal tensile strength for the material.


The Hydrajaws M2000 Material Bond Tester Kit consists of:

  • Hand operated puller.
  • 0 - 25kN Dual Scale Digital Gauge
  • Adjustable alignment bond stool plate with built-in levelling facility.
  • Bond Stool bush.
  • No direct oil loss (only a tiny drop lost when detaching the gauge)
  • Gauge is detachable for calibration purposes (shipping only the gauge reduces carrier costs)
  • 10 x 75mm diameter steel discs, 20mm thick.
  • 10 x 50mm diameter steel discs, 20mm thick.
  • Robust padded carrying case
