|Publication Date:||1 February 2005|
|ICS Code (Organic coatings):||25.220.60|
This test method covers the procedure for measurements of internal stresses in organic coatings by using the cantilever (beam) method.
This method is appropriate for the coatings for which the modulus of elasticity of substrate (Es) is significantly greater than the modulus of elasticity of coating (Ec) and for which the thickness of substrate is significantly greater than thickness of coating (see Note 4 and Note 5).
The stress values are limited by the adhesion values of coating to the substrate and by the tensile strength of the coating, or both.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
