Gel Timer

These gel timers are perfect for determining the gel time of resinous plastics, adhesives, crying oils, two component elastomers, and paints. A low torque, synchronous motor rotates a specially shaped stirrer in the catalyzed resin or elastomer. As gelation occurs, drag exeeds torque and the motor stalls. This signals an electronic circuit which stops the clock and activates a flashing lamp. The gel time will show on the LCD display.

  • Simple to operate – place the material sample in the cup, insert the wire stirrer, set the counter to 0 and switch on the unit
  • No mess – No tools required – No cleanup • Motor can remain stalled overnight without damaging the unit
  • Choose from three different models:
    • Basic Version
    • “Hot Pot” model determines gel time at temperatures up to 350 °F with a simple rheostat temperature controller
    • “StablTemp Hot Pot” model determines gel time at temperatures up to 350 °F with an electronic proportioning control which regulates the set temperature with virtually no drift or variation.
