Paints and varnishes — Rapid-deformation (impact resistance) tests — Part 1: Falling-weight test, large-area indenter
|Publication Date:||15 August 2011|
|ICS Code (Paints and varnishes):||87.040|
This part of ISO 6272 describes a method for evaluating the resistance of a dry film of paint, varnish or related product to cracking or peeling from a substrate when it is subjected to a deformation caused by a falling weight, with a 20-mm-diameter spherical indenter, dropped under standard conditions.
NOTE The terms "impact" and "impact resistance" are used in the title and text of this part of ISO 6272, but an important characteristic of the apparatus used is that it should produce rapid deformation rather than a true impact.
The method described can be applied
- either as a pass/fail test, the test being carried out from one drop height and with a specified mass, so as to test compliance with a particular specification;
- or as a classification test, to determine, by gradually increasing the drop height and/or the mass, the minimum mass and/or drop height for which the coating cracks or peels from its substrate.
