This test will provide information on the ability of coatings applied to pipe to resist cracking, disbonding, or other mechanical damage as a result of bending. Because the test is applied to coated pipe from commercial production, the results can be directly used in the selection of similar materials for service. The test also has application as a quality control method when variations in coating application or material formulation will affect bending performance.View Less
1.1 This method covers the specific determination of the effect of short-radius bends on coatings applied to 33.4-mm (1-in. nominal) diameter pipe.
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.
1.3 The values stated in SI units to three significant decimals are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
