Standard Test Method for Measuring Adhesion of Organic Coatings in the Laboratory by Direct Tensile Method
|Publication Date:||1 April 2016|
|ICS Code (Organic coatings):||25.220.60|
This test method covers the laboratory determination of organic coating adhesion to plastic substrates by mounting and removing a metal stud from the surface of the coating and measuring the force required to break the coating/substrate bond with a tensile tester. This test method may also be applied to substrates other than plastic.
This test method requires that the metal stud be adhered directly to the surface of a coated, cured panel (Fig. 1).
This test method is used to compare the adhesion of coatings to plastic or other substrates, thus allowing for a quantitative comparison of various coating/substrate combinations in laboratory conditions.
Other tensile test methods are Test Methods D4541, D7234, D7522, and ISO 4624 (but are not technically equivalent).
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to inch-pound units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
