Avoid the costs of premature adhesive failure
Coatings must adhere to the substrates they are applied to perform satisfactorily. ATS offers a variety of ASTM coating adhesion testing capabilities to help clients optimize the functionality of their coating applications and avoid premature failure. Our testing services save clients money, providing them with the data necessary to pick the right coating and effectively protect their products, equipment, and infrastructure.
Pull-off Test — This procedure is accomplished by sticking a loading fixture perpendicularly to the coating, then slowly increasing tensile load until either the fixture and adhesive layers are removed or until a predetermined value is reached.
