In addition to a written checklist that was completed for each pulley as a permanent record that the Elastotec application procedure had been followed exactly, and duplicate adhesion test samples were made and cured with the pulley (see photos below). Adhesion results of 20.0 and 24.7 N/mm both with 100% Rubber Tear failure confirmed that the application had been successful.
