Weight of coating on aluminum-coated iron or steel articles ASTM A428
The average coating mass over a particular area of aluminium coated steel or iron article is determined using ASTM A428. Thickness of the coating can also be computed using this method. The test method's final results are expressed in either inch-pound units or SI units.
This test technique establishes a standard for determining the mass of aluminum coatings applied to iron or steel items. Aluminum coatings on iron or steel objects produce a relatively inert barrier that protects against corrosion. The thicker layer will provide more protection against mechanical damage that could cause the coating to crack.
In ASTM A428, using a razor blade, the aluminum coating from the specimens is removed. Then, the specimens are cleaned by washing them in petroleum ether or another suitable solvent and then weighed. At about 195 °F (90 °C), specimens are immersed in NaOH solution. Then, at room temperature, each specimen is immersed in HCl (sp gr 1.18 to 1.19) for no more than 3 seconds after that specimen is scrubbed with a sponge under running water, then reimmersed in the hot NaOH solution.
Specimen Size :
The specimen was created to the measurements specified, with an area 5.08 in².
Following formula is used
C is mass of coating, W1is original weight W2 is weight of stripped specimen, T is thickness and K is a constant.
Weight is 0.01 oz/ft2 in inch pound unit and 1 g/m2 when reporting in metric (SI) units.
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.
