The Tackiness and Adhesion Analyser is a specially made compact test module for the measurement of indentation and retraction properties of greases, gels or similar materials.  The tackiness of adhesives or other components can also be reliably measured.

Based on the indentation-retraction principle (as an AFM) for the milliNewton load range, this tester can be used to characterise flow, stickiness, tackiness of many materials.
