ASTM C633 Testing

Applied Technical Services conducts ASTM C633 testing to determine the bond strength between thermal spray coatings and substrates.
What are Thermal Spray Coatings, and Why are They Important?
Thermal spraying is a coating process that improves a material’s resistance to abrasion, corrosion, erosion, and heat-induced damage. Thermal spray materials include metals and ceramics such as carbides or metal oxides. There are multiple benefits to thermal spray coatings, including:
Several industrial sectors rely on thermal spray coatings, including:
ASTM C633 Testing Explained
ASTM C633 Testing Explained During the procedure, technicians coat one side of a substrate fixture, bonding the coating to the fixture before applying a tensile force to the plane of the coating layer. Technicians then determine the coating’s tensile strength by dividing the load applied at failure by the cross-sectional area. Failure occurs within the substrate interface, epoxy adhesive, or coating system. The procedure specifically applies to coatings applied via thermal spray, which includes the following methods:
The result of the procedure offers insight into the bonding strength of thermal coatings, allowing manufacturers to follow ASTM C633 testing standards helps with the following:
