Standard Test Method for Hydrophobic Surface Films by the Atomizer Test
|Publication Date:||1 April 2020|
|ICS Code (Surface treatment):||25.220.20|
This test method covers the detection of the presence of hydrophobic (nonwetting) films on surfaces and the presence of hydrophobic organic materials in processing environments. When properly conducted, the test will enable detection of fractional molecular layers of hydrophobic organic contaminants. On very rough or porous surfaces, the sensitivity of the test may be significantly decreased.
