DRY FILM PROPERTIES


Dry Film Thickness

Measurement of coating thickness on the applied substrate

Standards

Significance:

Impact Test

This simple to use gauge is ideal for evaluating the resistance of a coating to impact (elongation, cracking or peeling)

Standards

If no cracks are evident, repeat the procedure at a greater height, increasing 1 in. (25mm) at a time.

Pencil Hardness Test

Simple & effective technique to evaluate the hardness and resistance to scratching of coatings

Standards

Allows the use of pencils which have a known hardness grade to be moved over the surface to be tested at a fixed angle and pressure.

Flexibility Test

Also known as conical mandrel testis a mechanical tester used to determine the effects of bending on the elasticity, adhesion and elongation properties of cured coatings on sheet metal

Standards

Cross Hatch Adhesion Test

The Cross Hatch Cutter allows an assessment to be made of the adhesion resistance of coatings to separation from substrates when a right-angled lattice pattern is cut into the coating and penetrates through to the substrate.

Stormer viscometers-(ASTM D 562)

Scratch Hardness Test

Defined as resistance to indentation or scratching

Standards

SHORE D Hardness

Measures the hardness of the surface of the coating.

Standards

Holiday Detector Test

The Holiday Dete ctor is a DC Holiday Tester that tests and detects pinholes and flaws in insulated coatings on conductive substrates.

Standards

Significance

Taber Abrasion Test

designed to perform accelerated wear tests on a variety of specimens.

Standards

Significance

Pull off Adhesion Test

measures the adhesion bond strength of applied coatings with ease, and precision.

Standards

UTM Tensile Elongation Test

also known as auniversal tester,materials testing machineormaterials test frame, is used totestthetensile strength and compressive ,Peel , flexural strength of materials.
