Mandrel Bend Test of Attached Organic Coatings ASTM D522
ASTM D522 is a set of two test methods A and B that are used to determine the elongation or resistance to cracking of attached organic coatings on substrates. Methods A and B deal with coated panels bent over a conical mandrel and cylindrical mandrel respectively
ASTM D522 test contains two test methods that determine the elongation or resistance to cracking of attached organic coatings on substrates. The substrate can be cold-rolled steel strip, sheet metal, or rubber-type materials.
For ASTM D522 test, the coatings materials are applied at a constant thickness to panels of steel strip or sheet metal, or rubber-type materials. There are two methods included: Method A and Method B. These test methods are applicable in rating attached coatings for their capacity to withstand cracking when elongated and also useful in determining the flexibility of coatings on flexible substrates.
After the process of curing or drying, the coated panels are bent over a mandrel and the elongation or resistance to cracking of the coating is evaluated. The coated panels are bent over a conical mandrel in Test Method A whereas the coated panels are bent over cylindrical mandrels of various diameters in Test Method B.
The number of samples per product in test method A is 3 and in the test method B is 2. The substrate thickness for coating elongation rating is a cold-rolled steel strip of 0.8 mm (1/32 inches) thick and for rating coated material is sheet metal of less than 0.8 mm (1/32 inches) or rubber-type materials is less than 13 mm (½ inches). The dimensions of the samples are 46 inches.
Mean and range of coating elongation or resistance
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etches solution used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
