Organic coatings on precoated sheet are subjected to stresses when fabricated into products by roll forming, brake bending, or other deformation processes. These stresses can exceed the flexibility or adhesive strength of the coating, resulting in fracture of the coating, exposing the substrate, or loss of adhesion to the substrate. This test is a means of evaluating the ability of a coating system to withstand the stresses of fabrication.
The bend direction, whether the axis of bend is across or along the rolling diameter of the metal, and the temperature of the specimen when it is bent affect the results of this test and should be agreed upon between the supplier and the user.2View Less
1.1 This test method describes a procedure for determining the flexibility and adhesion of organic coatings (paints) on metallic substrates that are deformed by bending when the sheet is fabricated into building panels or other products.
1.2 The metal substrate must be capable of passing this test without fracturing and with no excessive grain development.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 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.
