Standard Test Method for Hydrophobic Surface Films by the Water-Break Test
|Publication Date:||31 August 1965|
|ICS Code (Surface treatment):||25.220.20|
1.1 This test method covers the detection of the presence of hydrophobic (nonwetting) films on surfaces and the presence of hydrophobic organic materials in processing ambients. When properly conducted, the test will enable detection of molecular layers of hydrophobic organic contaminants. On very rough or porous surfaces the sensitivity of the test may be significantly decreased.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
