ASTM International - ASTM F1864-98
Standard Test Method for Dust Erosion Resistance of Optical and Infrared Transparent Materials and Coatings
|Publication Date:||10 April 1998|
|ICS Code (Coatings and related processes used in aerospace industry):||49.040|
1.1 This test method covers the resistance of transparent plastics and coatings used in aerospace windscreens, canopies, and viewports to surface erosion as a result of dust impingement. This test method simulates flight through a defined particle cloud environment via independent control of particle size, velocity, impact angle, mass loading, and test duration.
1.2 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 determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
