Standard Practice for Impact Flexibility of Organic Coatings
|Publication Date:||1 December 2020|
|ICS Code (Organic coatings):||25.220.60|
This practice covers a procedure for determining the ability of a coating film and its substrate to resist shattering, cracking, or chipping when the film and substrate are distended beyond their original form by impact.
This practice does not measure impact resistance but uses rapid impact to improve Test Methods D522, a test method for flexibility. Since the impact of the coating is almost instantaneous, all of the problems associated with time variables in the mandrel tests are eliminated.
This practice is similar in content but not technically equivalent to Test Method D2794.
